From the absolute top of the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction pile, this documentary about an off-kilter Scottish lad who showed up at secondary school in the mid-90s and raised more questions than he answered, is a wild (and inventive) ride that will have you hooked from the start. Filmed mostly as a ‘Daria’-style animated retelling of the whack-a-doo events, you’ll never believe or imagine where this thing is going, and just when you think you’ve figured it out, it goes a dozen steps further.

4/5 stars
