Deerskin

Absurd tale sees the fractured masculinity of a middle-aged man (The Artist's Jean Dujardin) on full display when he forms an unhealthily strong relationship with a tasseled deerskin jacket. The latest outing from unimitable French director Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong), aka Mr. Oizo.

Slight but quite amusing ... But despite a few good gags and committed performances, the nagging suspicion that this eccentric concept would’ve worked better as a medium-length work or even a short remains.

It’s hard to shake the feeling that Dupieux’s outré premise would have worked better as a short, as the unusual narrative struggles to make the scenario palatable even at the bare minimum for a feature-length treatment.

Deerskin is more of a twisted lark than anything else, but it hits on something meaningful—a first for a director who’s shown almost no prior interest in reality, even within a film called Reality.

Although ostensibly set in the present day, this odd, frightening and entrancing little movie seems stuck in a moment out of time.

A loopy entertaining WTF lark. ... The fact that it holds you, for 77 minutes, is a testament to the debauched rigor of Dupieux’s filmmaking.

A nerve-inducing triumph of off-kilter and self-aware filmmaking.
