Dear Wendy, won’t you come out to play? The sun is up and the sky is blue but there is nowhere for young Dick (Jamie Bell) to play. That is, until he befriends a small antique handgun and starts up a secret society of junior fops made up of the dysfunctional and dispossessed losers who live in a timeless Midwestern mining town. Their allegiance to their guns and the rules of the group are initially encouraged by the genial local cop Krugsby (Bill Pullman) until one day things get out of hand when they decide to escort an innocent but paranoid old lady across the road.

Scripted by Lars von Trier (Breaking the Waves) and directed by Thomas Vinterberg (It’s all About Love), this hyper—real post-Dogme work is as bizarre and unsettling as anything these disorderly, irreverent Danes have worked on before. A kind of perverse, low budget follow up to Von Trier‘s superb essay on US settler mores Dogvil/e, Dear Wendy is part US pioneer spirit parody and part archly voiced-over Western. Polarised and muddied by Anthony Dod Mantle’s (Mil/ions, Festen) stunningly doughy cinematography, this is as mystifying as it is bewildering, but lovers of quirky Americana independent cinema will find it to be something of a small joy. Think The Goonies meets Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid choreographed by Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller and you are somewhere close. (Paul Dale)
