The Paragon – Michael Duignan (2023)

  • comedy

In a bit of a “Snatch” type comedy we follow Dutch, a somewhat questionable New Zealander who is hit by a car and left for dead. He survives and finds it his mission to catch the driver that hit him. He responds to an ad to learn how to become psychic, but of course, he did not really have to respond to that.

Dutch becomes an apprentice of Lyra who has all kinds of psychic tricks for him to learn, but Dutch is only interested in the finding of objects. When it turns out that Dutch is somewhat gifted, Lyra also has a task for him.

Somewhat screwball with witty dialogues and weird situations, the film goes from comedy drama to more of a fantasy thriller. The result is amusing, but not great.
