      bog f incredible film, started a chain reaction in my brain which led to me realising that i probably have autism. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Emily G Bunny and the Bull is a masterpiece and it genuinely might be the best film I've ever watched. The visuals, the characters, the music and the story are all truly beautiful. The way sets are used like a scrapbook and memory is conveyed through the physical fabric of each scene is genius and it changed the way I view the film as a medium. The ending made me weep. I'm actually angry that nobody seems to know about this film, it should be a cult classic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review isla s This is most certainly a quirky, somewhat surreal film - its very much 'The Mighty Boosh'-ish but I found it delightfully amusing due to its quirkiness. I wasn't so keen on 'The Mighty Boosh' (a somewhat eccentric TV series) but this film I enjoyed, as I found myself relating to some aspects of the plot and the main characters (one moreso than others) are at least somewhat likeable. I liked that it has a sort of stop motion animation look to it in parts of some scenes. Its very imaginative and I like the bright yellow/orange colour tint present in some parts too, plus the light instrumental music played (a xylophone was played at one point). It does have a sort of chidish naivety to it but there is a fair bit of moderately strong language used, so this isn't intended for especially young viewers (it carries a 15 rating). Also, for comparisons sake, I'd say it has a slight feel of the 'Adam & Joe show' about it - that was a 1990s comedy show in the UK, in which the 2 comedians (Adam and Joe) would recreate famous films and other things with cheap materials (dolls/action figures etc. - look it up on youtube if interested). There are some stereotypes present (a Russian character and Noel Fielding as a delightfully over the top Spanish matador) but overall I thought it was a quirky and lighthearted, fairly amusing and certainly reasonably entertaining film. It won't appeal to everyone but I suppose I'd recommend it, yes. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Visually interesting and unique but found the plot dull and humorless and the conclusion ridiculous. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member A damn right surreal and odd film that is a completely different league of quirky. Bunny and the bull is a funny, artsy comedy that tells the story of an agoraphobic living life by routines. The film is structured through flash back and tells the story of the two guys on a european holiday and why he turned into an agoraphobic. Some very funny moments and nice to see cameos from noel fielding and julian barratt. A great film that is way out there. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review troy k Didn't last 15 minutes.....just not my cup of tea. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Tom Russo Boston Globe Hogg and Farnaby have some very funny interplay, but the dynamics of the characters' friendship are thoroughly familiar. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 30, 2010 Full Review Jeff Shannon Seattle Times As its story winds through imaginative landscapes of papier-mâché, cardboard cutouts and multilayered stagecraft, the childlike whimsy of Michel Gondry comes to mind. A hint of Terry Gilliam's irreverence adds flavor to the mix. Rated: 3/4 Sep 16, 2010 Full Review Anton Bitel Little White Lies beneath all its layers of whimsy, this cock and bull story is grounded in genuine pain and torment. May 20, 2010 Full Review Nikki Baughan Roll Credits Bunny and the Bull is more accessible to a wider audience thanks to a solid and inspired story, which combines comedy and pathos in equal measure. Rated: 4/5 Oct 25, 2019 Full Review Ali Gray TheShiznit.co.uk Diverting enough as a visual curio, and boasting a extremely pleasant soundtrack a la Yann Tiersen's score for Amelie, Bunny And The Bull has a surplus of style but little in the way of real substance. Rated: 3/5 Sep 29, 2012 Full Review Simon Miraudo Quickflix Bunny and the Bull is a funny, innovative and touching little comedy that proves -- despite all evidence on the contrary -- some TV folk are fully capable of making the transition to the big screen. Rated: 4/5 Oct 21, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
