I Lost My Body ★★★

I like the idea of a character study focused on hands, and I Lost My Body is a frequently compelling execution of the concept. However, its surrealist subplot (a disembodied hand’s epic journey back to its owner) is mostly a distraction, its reliance on various dramatic tropes gets wearisome, and its score pushes way too hard to elicit emotions it hasn’t quite earned. (These Stranger Things arpeggiated ’80s synth chords thing are really a thing now, huh?)
