Day two ends with a new one from Quentin Dupieux. I think he's another one that just gets better and better with each film. While I liked Wrong, I feel like his mix of reality and surrealism is getting closer to Bunuel's best work as he goes on. This one is about a guy who's so enamored with this fringe deerskin coat that he basically reinvents himself, first as a filmmaker then as a murderer as he embodies the deerskin that he wears. The jacket starts to talk to him, telling him that it must be the only jacket in the world.
It makes no sense, but it's funny! Maybe you could pull some social commentary out of it but mostly I think it's just fantasy juxtaposed with reality. I had a great time with it.
