Screenplay: Quentin Dupieux.

Twitter Capsule: Dupieux retains very odd ideas of premise and arc, but this is a huge step up from Rubber...and a hoot! Dujardin is bliss.

VOR:   Impressive to have mapped out such a distinctive aesthetic already, synthesizing tone and style. I'd still love to see a more elongated idea.
