Film Review - Mental

MENTAL Toni Collette

“Mental” is mental, living up to the potential of its title with a wild, uninhibited display of psychological fractures and grotesque comedy. The picture marks the return of writer/director P.J. Hogan to the screen, who long ago helmed the cult hit “Muriel’s Wedding” before embarking on a deflating Hollywood career that included “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” 2003’s “Peter Pan,” and “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” Revisiting his Australian roots, Hogan summons a tidal wave of mischief and manic activity with “Mental,” straddling a thin line between insanity and compassion. Hilarious but a tonal bucking bronco, the effort is perhaps best reserved for viewers in the mood for a runaway mine cart viewing experience, willing to absorb all the chaos Hogan happily provides.
