/Film reader Daniel C passes along word that /Film is quoted on the Australian release of Taika Waititi’s Eagle vs. Shark, which was one of my favorite films of 2007. Unfortunately Miramax Films didn’t know how to market the film, and the movie went virtually unseen by mainstream audiences. It was also passed by indie audiences because it came at the end of the tidal wave of way-too-quirky indie films, that were released in the years following Napoleon Dynamite. And yes, I was probably laying it on a little thick by declaring it the “best indie romantic comedy of all time”, but to be honest, few true indie romantic comedies exist, and this is my favorite.
