Description
I didn’t really understand why at the time of watching Boy I had feelings of dissociation with Taika Waititi, but I have come to comprehend this reaction more fully as I have read the articles of this special issue and thought about it less intuitively. “Alamein’s Encore”, the feature-length audio commentary track that Ocean Mercier discusses in her article in this issue further unearths my discord. The commentary provides a monologue between Taika the director and Alamein the jocular rustic fool. The film, thus, reminding me, in a visceral way, of a ponce from The City rolling into town for the summer holidays (whom my mates and I would have called a ‘big-head’ or a ‘dick-head’), who sums up the rustic ghetto in one foul swoop and proceeds to tell the Natives how cool his flash ku-mara is.[Article Introduction].
