Quick Review: A Fantastic Fear of Everything
A Fantastic Fear of Everything is a very weird film. Starts as a dark comedy, then turns into a psycho thriller drama, then it adds psychedelic animated scenes, and then it’s a drama-comedy. Simon Pegg is the best part about this film, which seems to lack any actual direction, thus indicating that the director had no idea where the story was supposed to go and how to build an actual atmosphere. Terry Gilliam would be much more fitting for a story such as this one, about a paranoid children’s author who mostly works as a crime novelist, because this way, we get a total genre mash-up of a movie that tries to be a lot of things at the same time, but doesn’t really succeed.
