Off-the-graph oddity. The least that can be said for Harmony Korine is that his films aren't like many others.

This one stars Diego Luna as a Michael Jackson impersonator, throwing shapes and moonwalking on the streets of Paris. He meets a Marilyn Monroe impersonator – played, unbelievably, by Samantha Morton – and they relocate to a strange commune in the Scottish Highlands, where the residents include the Queen (Anita Pallenberg), the Pope (James Fox) and Morton's violent husband Charlie Chaplin (Denis Lavant). I'm sure there's a point to the film, but I'm damned if I could find it.
