What Did Jack Do? (2017)

I don’t usually review short films, but this is written by, directed by and starring David Lynch, so I’ll make an exception. Not only that, it features Lynch, interviewing a talking monkey in a train station, what’s not to love! The monkey, Jack, is in trouble, tied up in a surreal inquisition, questioning his movements and his innocence. The monkey’s clearly caught up in something, hiding behind a tirade of proverbial phrases. Then he gets up and sings, then a chicken appears and Lynch chases the monkey with a gun. Not a clue what the intension is, but it kept me entertained for 20 minutes.
