French director Quentin Dupieux only makes extremely weird movies, including the killer tire movie Rubber. His latest is his highest-profile release yet, starring Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Adele Haenel, currently setting hearts ablaze in Portrait of a Lady on Fire.
Dujardin plays Georges, a filmmaker vacationing in a small town where he's recently acquired a flashy deerskin jacket. His newfound confidence (and potentially an actual psychic connection to an evil piece of clothing) cause him to do riskier and riskier things, including adding real violence to his movies. Dupieux always keeps his movies brief, and this one clocks in at only 77 crazy minutes.
The film earned mostly positive reviews at Cannes and TIFF, and opens in limited release in the U.S. on Friday, March 20.
