Director: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Bernicio Del Toro, Demian Bichir
Certificate: 15
The man whose face adorns a thousand t-shirts, who overthrew a dictator, and single-handedly fuelled the cigar industry in Cuba, seems like the ideal subject for a Hollywood biopic. But up to the plate steps Soderbergh, the most un-Hollywood of all Hollywood helmers. The maverick to the industry. LA’s Bergerac. And so the resulting piece is something a little different to what you’d expect.

It may seem natural that, after years of influential and masterful handiwork, Frank Miller, the visual genius behind Batman: Year One and Sin City, the Golden Palm-nominated artiste extraordinaire, should hobble home from the Hollywood party of his life and, relaxing in his ensuite facilities, squeeze out a bit of a turd. Now this is not just a turd, this is a Frank Miller turd – it is shiny, sleek and sexy, like no other turd before it, but under the seductive surface sheen, it still has the whiff of a turd.

“Say it a million times. Say it a million more times. And the word you will have said two million times is ‘yes’” – Terrence Stamp in full ham mode as Terrence Bundling, head of a cult-like self-help movement, whose members say “YES!” to every opportunity that comes their way. Into this way of life walks no-man Carl (Carrey), whose routine existence is about to be blitzed together with a potent dose of positivity.

In 1951, we had a close encounter with an extra-terrestrial. He brought ill tidings, threatening to extinguish the human race if they continued their hostile ways. Evidently, someone thinks we weren’t listening, because 57 years later Scott Derrickson (who?) turns up with a computer and tells the story all over again. Naturally, things need a little tweaking – an update here, a pixel there – and the result is a much more modern piece.
