Georges, 44 years old, and his jacket, 100% deerskin, have a plan. “The odd twist of Quentin Dupieux’s ‘Deerskin’ is its deceptive simplicity. Anyone familiar with the French director’s loopy, surrealist comedies — the killer tire saga ‘Rubber’ and Kafkaesque noir ‘Wrong’ among them — knows that his zany, paranoid characters speak in baffling monologues as their worlds melt around them. ‘Deerskin’ follows suit, but reduces the style to a minimalist curiosity, resulting in a 78-minute stunt with one appealing hook: Jean Dujardin, hilarious and unhinged, as a psychopath so infatuated with his new jacket that he decides it should be the only one in the world.” (Eric Kohn, Indiewire)
