    • Excerpt: Dupieux’s DEERSKIN presents a sneaky, very black comedy that is at once a slick parody and a sharp commentary on modern pretension and pathological self-absorption.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Dujardin is a great comedic actor capable not only of subtle shading, but of true empathy with his characters, a quality that makes even his most obnoxious ones endearing.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Dupieux delivers a darkly funny exercise that pushes its premise as far as it can. It’s random, silly, and eventually takes the turn to disturbing, and the whole ride getting there is a lot of fun.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: At 77 minutes long, Deerskin won’t push your patience. It doesn’t even push the boundaries of good taste, it’s got too much killer style.

    • Excerpt: Well, here’s a weird one for you.

    • Excerpt: This is a mid-life crisis. Strike that. This is a mid-life crisis in a Quentin Dupieux movie.

    • Excerpt: …considering the manic maximalism of Dupieux’s last major outing—2014’s ‘Reality,’ which seemed like it had about fifteen interweaving subplots in a dreams-inside-of-dreams structure—’Deerskin’ is relatively restrained, focused on only two major characters and a single absurd conceit. In that sense, it’s almost Buñuelian…

    • Excerpt: A closed bank account, an epiphany, a wearable trophy of a suit of armor and off to the races.
