In MANDIBLES, two minor criminals find a giant fly the size of a cocker spaniel in the trunk of a stolen car and decide to train it to help them steal things (a la Oliver Twist). The characters are as inept as those in a Coen Brothers film, and the plot is also as strange. It also looks like the filmmakers got many of their ideas from the 1958 version of THE FLY. The film is in French, but with well-done subtitles which are readable on all backgrounds.
Released theatrically 07/23/21; available on various streaming services. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4), or 6/10.
