Seems like a quirky idea that was extended into a movie
5 January 2020 | by themartistSee all my reviews

... without any real character development, motivations or purpose. The entire premise of a guys obsession for a jacket feels extremely forced. Watching, I always felt conscious of the scriptwriting process. All plot turns felt very forced. It honestly seemed like Quentin had taken a random bizarre idea, and tried to brainstorm ways to make it work across genres, in an arthouse package.

Its an offbeat mixed genre cocktail that seems to suffer from an identity crisis. Comedy, Horror, drama, arthouse - but in trying to cross all genres just fails to have anything compelling about it. Not funny, clever, deep or exciting in anyway unfortunately.

Dupieux has a strong visual style, the cinematography is well done... and Dujardin is excellent at whatever he touches, but he shouldn't have touched this script. The whole movie really missed the mark for me.

I give it 5/10 because on paper it has everything I like... a strong visual style, quirky premise and fantastic lead man in Jean Dujardin... but unfortunately putting all the elements together was the most disappointing flaw for me.

I feel that watching "bad" movies can often be the most educational in evolving as a filmmaker and I look forward to see what Dupieux learns from his mistakes in this below average film.
