Mon Oncle

Mon Oncle

Loved it. Glad I gave this a shot after being thoroughly confused by PlayTime (and honestly this made me wanna give PlayTime another shot! In like twenty years. Too many movies!) A really gorgeous and stunningly-designed satire of the upper-middle class and their desperate attempts to cling to modernization and manners, no matter how inconvenient. Watching this after seeing The French Dispatch and realizing Wes Anderson was doing an homage to this (and has been doing an homage to Tati through his entire career) felt like the end of a heist movie when the bad guy realizes he just let those dudes get away with his cash.
