Quirky humour
13 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this independently produced movie in pre-release.

Largely the work of writer and lead actor Brian Spaeth, it isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea. Some types of humour are not to everyone's taste, and Who Shot Mamba? is one of them. It takes elements from a number of mainstream genres and, with a completely straight face, does things with them which are completely daft (for the first five minutes the daftness is played so straight that you're not quite sure whether it's a comedy or not). As it happens, this style of humour is very much my cup of tea, and I enjoyed Who Shot Mamba? a lot.

For an independently produced movie, the production values are quite good. The music, particularly the opening theme, is attractive and the performances are all as straight-faced and daft as the script.

Spaeth himself, performing to his own script, delivers a performance almost of wide-eyed innocence: he has an appealing screen presence.

I recommend this movie to anyone with an affection for absurdist humour.
