What Did Jack Do? Reviews

Jul 31, 2021
As if Bogart himself rose from the dead, got hammered, and dictated his heartfelt last will and testament in cinema-speak to a no-nonsense bartender just before closing time.

Shot in a scratchy black-and-white reminiscent of the 1940s film noir, the bizarre idea of featuring a suspect in the form of a talking capuchin monkey is pure David Lynch.

Classic David Lynch and a must-see for all Lynch lovers. From now on every movie must feature a monkey singing a love song to a chicken.

Beneath the absurdity and non-sequiturs there's an emotional weight to the elliptical back story, and the monkey's wonderfully expressive face -- guilty, agitated, rueful -- suits the piece perfectly.

It's simply an excursion of style, one which deserves as many logical rematches as your brain can handle.

It's an oddly welcoming return for David Lynch and, in its short runtime, it gives audiences a unique spin on the Interrogation scene that has become so well known in the film industry.

It's weird as hell, man, and I can't get enough of it.

If you are a David Lynch fan you absolutely need to go see What Did Jack Do.

No more than an exercise in style -- but what distinctive style.

David Lynch's sense of humor has become slightly more acerbic -- his sense of whimsy has only increased over the years -- so What Did Jack Do? plays partly like a silly prank on Netflix subscribers. This is a great thing.

While short in length, What Did Jack Do? has plenty of time to show off Lynch's supreme talent for surreal storytelling (and acting).

It is comedy. It is drama. It is most definitely noir, rich with delicious Lynchisms, from the squashed-flat line readings to the weird Vaudevillian flourishes to THE COFFEE. But Jack's greatest Lynchian allure is its musty atmosphere.

It is all very silly. It will be embraced as a puckish masterwork from a beloved cultural figure. And sure, what the hell, why not. Look, I don't know what to tell you.

Lynch manages to create something singular to his own world. And as ever, it feels to the viewer that we have only been gifted a fragment of a larger, unseen text where everything, one day, might fall into place and make sense.
