2. Hunt for the Wilderpeople
After What We Do in the Shadows, Taika Waititi is a name that will get me to any theater, and before he goes off to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thor: Ragnarok, we get another comedy from him. Not many comedies have made this list, but in a festival where many people do not have an established voice yet, it is difficult to know whether or not you will jive comedically with a particular filmmaker. With Waititi, I know I do, and I can’t wait to see what he offers up this time around. Also, it’s nice to see Sam Neill in a big role.
