Comedic genius and existential anxiety make for a crazy-good movie!
Brilliantly funny!! Most comedic films now seem to rely on sex and gross bodily fluid effects to make people laugh, because real comedy is too hard for Hollywood to do. This film, which I was fortunate enough to see at its premiere at the Austin Film Festival, is a dazzling display of well-written wit, perfectly edited comedic timing, and some physical comedy that is so rare these days — the ice tea scene! I want this on DVD so I can watch Gabe and John Apicella over and over again. It's magnificent.
Absurd and funny and charming —I hope Diani and Devine Meet the Apocalypse gets a broad theatrical release in the US. Because it's a ridiculously fun movie, but with real heart and intelligence, too. Etta Devine and Gabriel Diani are surely the best comedy-film team working today, and I am blown away by what they accomplished in this hilarious film.
Do you worry about civilization ending, but then go get a latte and put it out of your mind? You will laugh so hard you will cry. Do you wonder how you would survive in the wild, when the closest thing you have to survival training is to have watched an episode of Mn v Wild or a season of Survivor? Yeah. You'll be howling with laughter. Do you have some vague plan about which crazy-prepared friend's house in the country you'd escape to if something apocalyptic happened? This. Find a way to see this movie.
The only thing that could improve this film is for it to get out there and to be wildly- successful and give Diani & Devine the resources to make another movie.
