'Playtime' is the cinematic equivalent to the modern Twitch stream
, where the viewers are not following a story or constructed narrative, but instead simply observing others navigating fields of complexity. The film is directed and stars, Jacques Tati, who plays Clumsy Monsieur Hulot, an American in Paris dumbfounded by the world modernization.
And who better to review this classic than the dunkman
himself. Available on the Criterion Collection for the fart sniffers among us.
