At the start, Georges is seemingly just a middle-aged, bearded loner living in a small-town motel. This image quickly turns more cynical when he obtains his most prized possession: a fringed, leathery deerskin jacket. After spending his lonely evenings in a local bar, Georges returns to his solitude and rants to his new fashion statement. It doesn’t take long for the coat to start talking back. It gives him instructions to eliminate every other jacket in existence, and he turns to crime and violence to bring its demands to fruition. This surreal, quirky film employs a dark yet comedic plot to bring home its final themes and punchline. Introduction by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF)
