Surely The Director Can Do Better Than This ?
2 May 2017 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

As soon as I saw the name Nacho Vigalondo I knew I had to catch this movie. The director wrote, directed and starred in 7.35 IN THE MORNING a short involving twisted desire, jet black comedy and one of the most memorable irritating catchy tunes it has been my pleasure to hear. 7.35 is one of these short films that leaves you gasping "What a simple brilliant idea , I wish I'd thought of that". Unsurprisingly Vigalondo went on to have a have a prolific and successful career. The downside is that his career is in Spanish language cinema and which means his material is rather difficult to get in Britain. Since COLOSSAL is English language featuring a bunch of Hollywood faces I quickly took the opportunity to see it , but having seen it I've got to ask is that it ?

A few people have praised COLOSSAL for its quirky nature. It's true that it has that quirky , independent feel and I've no doubt Nacho is a quirky , delightfully bonkers guy in real life but as both cinema and coherent narrative COLOSSAL falls short. I suppose you can call it a mixed genre film with a plot line involving human drama on one hand and sci-fi/horror spectacular on the other but the two aspects never gell. There is an explanation of sorts connecting the two plot lines but not in any deep meaningful manner. Just because something is explained and tries to be absurdist you still have to develop the story in order to convince the audience and any sort of internal logic didn't convince me here. The human elements of the story are somewhat boring and you constantly feel like you're watching people viewing stuff on social media. In short it's a major disappointment from someone who made one of the greatest short films I've ever seen
