In a cacophony of metallic voices and wavering images, In Fabric follows the path of a size 36 red dress. It can be purchased  from a (questionably human) saleswoman at a totalitarian-like department store called Dentley and Soper’s, a centrepiece of the film. The dress severely upsets its wearers’ lives. In Fabric is a wickedly slippery film that balks at interpretation. It’s best to let yourself trip on the images and sounds, and Strickland’s brilliant dialogues, all of which coalesce into a richly disturbing fabric of the tragic, the hilarious and the foolishness of human aspirations. Welcome to the Kingdom of the Weird.
