Garments make the man. Whoever coined that expression couldn’t have imagined the hilariously twisted extremes to which someone like absurdist director quentin dupieux (who done a positive cult fame thru his films “rubber” and “incorrect”) would possibly take it.
Absolute confidence, dupieux’s work is an received taste, even though he does audiences a prefer right here by means of casting oscar-triumphing “the artist” actor jean dujardin as a middle-elderly loser satisfied that buying a wildly out-of-fashion fringed leather jacket will improve his self-image. When the women aren’t impressed, he decides to accent him photograph with a lie, claiming to be a filmmaker prepping a shoot within the vicinity — as if dressing like howdy doody makes that workable. Whilst the man spirals farther out of manage, achieving a point where he begins to kill the strangers who refuse to surrender their coats, dujardin by no means breaks the façade of faux-seriousness any such pathetic role calls for. The movie might make an ideal double-bill with peter strickland’s “in material,” despite the fact that right here, the outfit isn’t the one on the attack. Dujardin’s man or woman has clearly taken his killer look a chunk too actually.uld possibly take it.
