And once again, Dupieux keeps his winning streak going. This film is a bit loopier than his most recent ones, with a story that doubles down on itself and spirals into absurdity. It's a fitting structure for a film about Dali, the famous absurdist painter. The performances are pleasantly self-aware, the cinematography a step up from Dupieux's earlier films, and the madness familiar but oh-so-gratifying. If you don't care for Dupieux's earlier work this won't be for you, but I'm amazed how he keeps reinventing himself within a narrow niche.
