Directed by Jan Lachauer, Jakob Schuh, Bin-Han To. With Tamsin Greig, Dominic West, Rob Brydon, Bertie Carvel. Two half-hour animated films based on the much-loved rhymes written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.
Who the hell is this you say? Rob Brydon is a Welsh comic and a wicked impressionist. Not widely known outside the UK, he’s like a deadpan, rapid-fire Kevin Pollack. Watch “the Trip”. (Not “the Trip to Italy”, it’s the sequel and is crap - bullocks as they say.) It’s one of the funniest films I’ve ever seen. He and Steve Coogan; seemingly polar opposites, are hilarious together as bickering, bantering road mates. And with no asinine fart or anus jokes - how refreshing. #robbrydon
