Capital Celluloid 2019 - Day 284: Fri Oct 11

Deerskin (Dupieux, 2019): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6.20pm

63rd LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (2nd-13th October 2019) DAY 10

Every day (from October 2nd to October 13th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This film, which opened the Director's Fortnight at Cannes, is also being screened on October 12th at the Vue West End in Leicester Square at 1.10pm. You can find the full details

London Film Festival introduction:
To say that Georges has a fetish for deerskin would be an understatement. In fact, his dedication to his textile of choice is so unwavering, the recent divorcé blows his entire life savings on the vintage fringe jacket of his dreams. With nothing but his new coat for company, Georges holes up in a remote country inn (using his wedding ring as collateral) where he imagines being the only jacket-wearer in the world. When he meets an aspiring film editor named Denise (Adèle Haenel), Georges masquerades as an independent filmmaker, concocting a bizarre plan to make his outerwear fantasy a reality. Boasting a riotous performance from Jean Dujardin as the pelt-loving evangelist, the ever-unpredictable Quentin Dupieux’s wickedly acerbic, deliciously deranged black comedy is a tailor-made cult classic.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
