CAUTION: MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS
From the director of the ultra-weird Rubber comes another movie that will make you scratch your head in bewilderment of the thoughts that somehow make it onto screen. Unlike Rubber (thankfully), despite the weird premise, Incredible But True actually manages to contain an interesting movie that makes sense within its own little world. A time-travel film that also delivers a poignant depiction of the fountain of youth, director Quentin Dupieux crafts a movie that is both oddly touching and insanely weird. It’s a bizarre piece of art, a film that will make you think about the difference between youth and health, the meaning of manhood, and the moments in life that we willingly let pass us by. Also, there’s a robot penis. Coming from the good folks at Arrow Video, this is definitely one to check out if you like weird, absurdist comedy. The film isn’t horror in the slightest, but it is some of the strangest avant garde cinema that I’ve seen in a while. It’s definitely worth a watch and fits well into Arrow’s bizarre-at-time catalogue.
