As a portrait of friendship, viewed through the compound eye of a mutant insect, it is multidimensional and rather moving.

Dupiex is on sublime form for this kooky road movie...

What works so well in Mandibles is how it's set up as a basic heist movie, using very familiar elements, so familiar they're almost tired cliches, before going completely off the rails into random demented territory.

Maybe this picture is just a string of wacky ideas, with no deeper meaning. But for those who take the ride, it's an hour and 17 minutes they're unlikely to forget.

"Mandibles" is short, odd and original, a weird comedy for people who like weird funny things, and it further establishes Dupieux as an ingenious and unique artist.

July 22, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Every frame encourages letting one's guard down, just so the story can roll into a ball of sloppy chaos and make an appropriately goofy mess.
