3. Colossal: A Small Tale About Big Problems

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. So they say, at least. But I don’t think it takes absolute power to corrupt, even the smallest amount of it can drive someone drunkenly mad, and Colossal is all about drunken power. Or maybe, the lack of it? Actually, it’s probably both. Walk with me as I take apart Nacho Vigalondo’s genre-bending dramedy and try to make sense of a film that is equal parts bizarre as it is funny! 

Colossal is Rated R for language. It features Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, and Dan Stevens. Directed by Nacho Vigalondo.
