Screener Squad: In Fabric

In Fabric Movie Review


The director of the very odd and experimental Berberian Sound Studio and The Duke of Burgundy returns with another shot across the bow of mainstream cinema with In Fabric. Here, he tells the story of the weirdest-ass department store ever, its cult of shoppers, and a haunted(?) dress that marks its wearers and then claims them. I don’t know how to describe this in words in a way that will make sense, really, as In Fabric is meant to be taken in, laughed with, WTFed with, and you’re either gonna go with it or you’re not. What did our critics say? Chris, Tessa, Marco, Mindy, and Frank are here to give you the report.


DIRECTED BY: Peter Strickland

STARRING: Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, Gwendoline Christie, Julian Barratt, Steve Oram, Barry Adamson, Richard Bremmer, Sidse Babett Knudsen
