"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.

While the labyrinthine schematics of this frolicsome Arcadian revue are worthy of veneration alone, the soundtrack is what really makes this film so superb. Personally arranged by Tati, the soundtrack is so impeccable that guffaws can be elicited from the mere slurp of whipped cream from a can. If any film could be boasted as a rival to the mise-en-scene of '2001', this one would be it. P.S. - Make sure the version you're watching is the uncut European release.
