In a town (or village) called Panic live Indian, Cowboy, and Horse. But Cowboy & Indian have forgotten that it is Horse’s birthday. What will they get him as a present? He already has hats! But what about a barbecue? That would be perfect, but they have no bricks to build it. Luckily, Stephen, the farmer next door helps get Horse out of the house so that they can go online and order the fifty bricks they need to build this barbecue. Things never go smooth though, do they? And Cowboy and Indian accidentally order 50 million bricks. A slight error, I hope you’ll agree.I stumbled across this one while flicking through stations on the telly today and am so glad that my first film of 2012 was just so great. This is a brilliant film. It makes very little sense, is totally surreal, and stars a horse called Horse. What more could you ask for in a film?
If I were to go on further with this review I would only end up using words like whimsical and surreal and that’d just put you off, wouldn’t it. The less you know the better I think. Just remember, if you get the chance to see A town called panic you should. You really really should. If you don’t like it, well, there must be something wrong with you.
