We sat down with legendary director/ puppeteer Brian Henson to talk about the hard left turn he took for his latest puppet-populated project, The Happytime Murders.
Touching and insightful for fans of the world's most beloved red Muppet, Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey will tickle the fancy of anyone wanting to know more about the title character, but the the documentary maddeningly hints at darker material unsuitable for such a lightweight production.
While it’s as funny as one would hope a Muppet film would be, the rebooting of this finely-felted gang of friends does have a few fairly big problems. Structurally the film is a bit wonky and the script feels like the result of many different people having a lot of different feelings about the tone of the film. To call a film like The Muppets out on such seemingly trivial issues might sound like the groaning of Statler and Waldorf, but despite any such complaints The Muppets are undoubtedly back at the top of their game comedically.
From under the table a small green flipper came up as Kermit propped himself onto the chair in front of his microphone. “Hi everybody!” OH MY GOD KERMIT’S HERE.
