Critic Reviews for The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (9)

A fans- and detractors-only affair. At its worst, it feels like a highbrow transgressive-celebrity-cameo skit.

March 26, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Hilarious, full of humor that is understated, wry and dependent on familiarity with interests as wide as Houellebecq's own.

March 25, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is pretty much the opposite of a contemporary American comedy: rather than broad, "The Kidnapping of Michel Houllebecq" is an exemplary example of narrow.

March 25, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The Houellebecq we see on screen is obviously rooted as much in fiction as in fact, yet what makes his performance so fascinating is the mischievous glee he takes in sending up his own persona.

March 24, 2015 | Full Review…

A divertingly eccentric, often comically absurd movie about a novelist ... who finds something like happiness after being abducted.

March 24, 2015 | Full Review…

A playful blurring of fact and fiction.
