Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

Weird: The Al Yankovic Story ★★★★

Finally, the mask comes off and we're treated to a surprisingly deep, shocking, introspective dive into the life and times of the legend of parody rock.

Daniel Radcliffe's face and magnificent performance is completely unrecognizable behind some incredible VFX magic. Radcliffe literally becomes "Weird Al" on the screen, right before your eyes. Every movement, gesture and financial debit of the real Al Yankovic is captured on film.

My only complaint, and I knocked it down a star for this, is the tasteless donkey scene. The writers need to go study Clerks II to see how bestiality in cinema is TRULY done.

Other than that, it was one of the most perfect films I've seen this year, if not since UHF.
