Critic Reviews for What Did Jack Do?

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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

January 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

April 13, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

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

January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

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.
