More Films Like These, Please - Finding Joy
3 December 2018 | by arthur_taferoSee all my reviews

There are no special effects, zombies, high tech, or violence in this film, so the chances that it would resonate with American audiences was very low. I generally hate films about writers who are "blocked"; they are generally people who are blockheads, not blocked. This story is about one of those blockheads who redeems himself by rejoining the human race via his family and next door neighbor, Joy. It is a simple story, but a very amusing one, as each member of the family is revealed to us by their own peculiar preferences. Joy is also peculiar; and we learn that just about everyone in the world is peculiar in their own way. A very insightful film. Be beware of the cat.
