Critic Reviews for Deerskin
This is a willfully dumbed-down, emptied-out version of Hitchcock, as if the goal were to prove that the mechanisms of suspense still appeal to the lizard brain no matter how stupid the overt "content".
Despite playing an odd, mad villain, Dujardin (best known for his Oscar-winning performance in "The Artist") remains dangerously charming.
Georges' descent into madness is never as immediately compelling as it is theoretically clever.
Quentin Dupieux's glum absurdist fable gives absurdism a bad name. It's a facile notion inflated to feature proportions.
We learn very few specific details about this somewhat monotonous guy, and yet that vagueness makes him and his quest more relatable.
