The Anti-Manic Pixie Dream Girl Movie


I really liked Swiss Army Man, but I didn’t get a chance to write about it when it was running around in theaters back in June. So now that it’s out on Blu-ray, I figured, hey: I already have a free review copy of the film, why not put down some virtual ink on it? So I did! I did that. I wrote about the film’s takedown of the manic pixie dream girl trope, and watched a ton of MPDG movies – from Aloha to Something Wild to Breakfast at Tiffany’s to the awful English language remake of My Sassy Girl – as research, so I would really appreciate it if you read the piece over at Paste Magazine, even if you have not seen the film (or even if you have but you hate it). Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. Make my effort worth it!
