Buffoon (2020)

Ron Howard classic in which care home residents are visited by a cheerfully rotund Covidian from another planet, who reveals to them the cosmic secret to not getting any older. “It’s called ‘Dying’. Now take a rejuvenating dip in this wet, frothing petri dish.”

A more comprehensive review of this new movie appears in the monthly print edition of Byline Times.

The Odeon of Death can be found on Twitter at, perhaps not altogether surprisingly, @OdeonofDeath.
