Deerskin

The latest from outrageously offbeat filmmaker-musician Quentin Dupieux (Rubber) follows a troubled man’s (Dujardin, The Artist) disengagement with reality as his relationship with a strange deerskin jacket deepens.

Madly entertaining — or entertainingly mad? — Deerskin is a showcase for both Dupieux’s high-wire storytelling and Dujardin’s chops as a leading actor. For long stretches, the film is a one-man operation, yet we’re continually riveted by this portrait of masculine insecurity gone unnervingly, amusingly, awry.
