A sinisterly surreal slice n' dice of blackly comedic crappy families!
Playfully peculiar cinematic agitator Art Timson's sinisterly surreal slice n' dice of blackly comedic crappy families finds the minutely moustachioed, and titillatingly tonsured, somewhat ineffectual, disenfranchised young man Norval (Elijah Wood) at a stressfully existential crossroads, a universally neurotic nincompoop whose insular, smartphone miniaturised life is about to take a precipitous plunge into preternaturally strange paternal perfidy after he visits his long estranged father at his creepily isolated 60s UFO-fashioned domicile. 'Come To Daddy' is a fiendishly twisted, riotously entertaining, deliciously morbid satire about the myriad insanities of family life, and there's a brash Joe Orton/Irvin Welsh vivacity to poor beleaguered Norval's increasingly disturbing revelations, perhaps, by courageously attempting to seek closure with his absentee pater unfamilias he inadvertently opens up an especially pernicious Pandora's box of starkly savage, paradigm shifting, bodybag-filling secrets! Elijah Wood's Norval is one of the most adorably frustrating, awkwardly fragile protagonists in recent memory, and the uniquely coiffed lad's hyperbolically hate-fuelled hero's journey is not one this blissfully brain-boggled viewer is likely to soon forget!
