Faux documentary that's real entertain'
27 August 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

Wheeler has been described as Dorff's vanity project. It might be simplistic in its storyline but there's a heart in the film. As a fantasy piece about someone's dream coming true it comes over quaint and enjoyable to watch. Dorff's live performances stike a chord of authenticity for what is actually a faux documentary where some participants are unaware that it's fictional. The prosthetics are a little off-putting but this was necessary for Dorff's disguise. What doesn't quite work was the revealing of a dark secret because it was inconsequential. Also, the way the film concluded felt abrupt.
