Critic Reviews for He Died With A Felafel In His Hand
Those who like their cinema on the edge should find a lot to enjoy here.
[Lowenstein] balances the needs of the comedic pain with the exigencies of dramatic truth very well.
the pop philosophy may sound like Richard Linklater material, but director Richard Lowenstein veers his scenarios with more control
Audience Reviews for He Died With A Felafel In His Hand
I don't think I "got" this. I do like to watch a good Australian movie, but, to me, this isn't one of them. Stupid random little pieces of life in a share house. Unconvincing characters and acting (even though some of this cast are good and have liked them in better movies). It seems I am in the minority here as a lot of people seemed to like this, but I just found it stupid. And I generally prefer art house films, so that shows how much I think this one sucked.
Dead roommate, pagans, skinheads, overdue rent, a suicidal bisexual female friend, and Nick Cave songs are a part of the lead characters' life as he drifts from place to place reluctant to settle down. Advise you to set your level of humor to "absurd" and guaranteed you'll enjoy. One of the highlights to watching this film is the looks your friends might give when you recommend the title.
Review tbc. Totally strange, quirky and so profound...we find a philosopher in the body of a misfit who seems to be a nomad more than anything else and all he wants is to find a home where he belongs it seems.
