Playtime 
An Observational and Visual Comedy
3/4 stars

"Playtime" definitely takes some adjusting to, but it's a nuanced and creative visual journey. The film is basically plotless and consists solely of observing a collection of characters in their native environment in Paris, complete with some visual jabs at technology and modern society. The film's color palette, framing, and direction are so creative, that the film bears a second watching to pick up all the sight gags and visual thematic symbolism that Tati packs into the film. It's certainly an observational film that may frustrate those looking for a plot-driven, traditional three act arc, but it's an avant garde masterpiece.
