TV Review: ‘Tatau’

TV Review: ‘Tatau’
Thinly drawn and skimpy on the details, “Tatau” works as a modest mystery/picturesque travelogue, provided one can get past the hackneyed premise and almost complete lack of character establishment. Two twentysomething pals from London have opted to seek fun and adventure in the Cook Islands (whose tourism bureau could certainly do a whole lot worse), before experimenting with a hallucinogen that triggers unexpected consequences in one of them. What follows is a mildly watchable thriller, assuming viewers don’t dwell too much on the white-savior-in-exotic-locale undertones, with a hint of Maori mysticism woven throughout the script by creator Richard Zajdlic.

In no time flat, Kyle (Joe Layton) and Budgie (Theo Barklem-Biggs) have silently shed their white shirts and office attire for swim shorts, soaking up island sun. As we meet them, in fact, they’re sucking down a drink with mysterious properties provided by the shady Dries (Barry Atsma

Review: Hector and the Search for Happiness

  • Comicmix
Given the genre cred of Simon Pegg and the ascendance of Rosamund Pike, I approached Hector and the Search for Happiness with a certain level of curiosity. I was unfamiliar with the original novel by French author Francois Lelord and somehow missed the film’s release back in September. 20th Century Home Entertainment resolved that with the release today of the film on DVD.

In short, the film is about a psychiatrist, Hector (Pegg), who wants to shake up his tedious life. He doesn’t feel like he’s good at his job or able to help people, and laments to his girlfriend Clara (Pike) that he has yet to sample the very experience he recommends to his clients. As a result, he goes walkabout, seeking to taste life and find happiness. Then things happen.

It’s a charming premise and certainly well-trod territory but one expects, well, more from the story,
