Dave Made A Maze

4.5 stars

Seemingly inspired by 1980s adventure films, Dave Made A Maze will probably go down as the most wonderfully weird film of the year. This existential comedy is about a man named Dave (Nick Thune) who builds a fort in his living room only to become trapped in his own booby-trapped filled creation. His girlfriend Annie (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) leads Dave's friends on a rescue mission, but they soon realise the labyrinth is deadly and constantly growing as Dave's imagination takes over. Writer Steven Sears and director/co-writer Bill Watterson have created a wacky and hilarious film including puppetry, animation and other clever camera work. The entire cast clearly had a lot of fun making this film. Dave Made A Maze is unique and absolutely worth seeing.
