Film Brief: Captain Fantastic

Captain Fantastic has a few cute moments, but overall it’s contrived and full of artifice.  A completely broken film; generously, 4/10.

On a related note — I’ve talked before about annual trends, and there’s an interesting one that’s developed this year: that of tongue-in-cheek survival in the wilderness: So far, Hunt for the Wilderpeople was the most successful of these; besides Captain Fantastic there was Swiss Army Man.
