Daily Dose Pick: Micmacs


Amélie and Delicatessen director Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Micmacs merges slapstick comedy with social conscience and political satire to create a film that’s both visually stunning and darkly hilarious.

A near-death experience catapults a video-store clerk on a zany quest to bring unscrupulous arms dealers to justice; along the way, he falls in love with a contortionist. The caper is Jeunet’s strongest film to date, a rich visual experience exploring the collateral damage of war via its group of bizarre and colorful misfits.
