Critics reviews

The enjoyment we take in their impressions is part of a fascination with the ‘life’ of what is dead (mimesis of what is dead), and with the death (deadness) of the person who brings them to life. In reviving an allegorical mode of apprehension, The Trip films don’t just mournfully hold up and reflect upon skulls. Comically turning inwards (mechanically turning outwards), Coogan and and Brydon are the skulls.
