Hank, stranded on a deserted island and about to kill himself, notices a corpse washed up on the beach. He befriends it, naming it Manny, only to discover that his new friend can talk and has a myriad of supernatural abilities...which may help him get home.Written by
At the beginning of the film, during the closeup of Hank trying to hang himself, you can see part of the real mainland or rest of the island to the upper right of the screen, revealing it to be far larger than the small island shown during the wide shot. See more »
I wanna have sex. I wish there was some way I could pretend to do it.
It's called masturbation. It's kinda like sex.
But by yourself?
Masturbating make people happy.
It's supposed to. Sure.
I bet you masturbate a lot.
I can't believe we're talking about this.

One of the most insanely creative and original film ever. Its often strange with crude humour about farting corpses and boners, but there certainly is a deeper meaning to it rather than being crudeness for the sake of it.
This film is truly a magical experience that dares to defy conventions. Its a thought provoking film that would make you question our conventions and need to be normal while exploring loneliness. With beautiful cinematography, powerful performances by Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, well paced with an excellent soundtrack this certainly is my favourite film of the year (so far).
Its certainly not everyone, it wouldn't be surprising if most people dismissed it saying 'What the hell'. Certainly recommended if you are into quirky, offbeat and creative films.
