THE KIDNAPPING OF MICHEL HOUELLEBECQ

  • 15

Shot in documentary style, partly based on real-life events and starring Houellebecq himself, and largely improvised, the French author and enfant terrible is in conversation with his kidnappers, playing out in a kind of reverse Stockholm syndrome. Uproariously funny and deeply sarcastic.
