Pierrot le Fou

Pierrot le Fou ★★★★½


Part of me is like "this would make an amazing silent film," and the other part is like "who the fuck would want to watch this as a silent film?" Which is to say the content of this film is irrelevant yet could also not be more crucial. Which is to say, this film is impossible to parse yet it renders parsing irrelevant. Er, that doesn't make any sense either... Hmmmm.

Amazing how light on its feet this is. It should be unbearable: a film with no plot that never shuts up. Sounds antithetical to cinema. But this film could not be more {neon lights} cinema!!! Y'know? Right? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills.

This review has destroyed my brand, hasn't it?
