Creative exercises can be rewarding for the participants, but often -- as in this case -- only mildly intriguing for audiences. The "exquisite corpse" game is executed here as an experiment in representation: How do eight unique, diverse perspectives on the same character affect her as a whole? While the answer to that question might offer a takeaway for those in the film industry, there's not much here for most viewers. As you might expect, mixing the work of eight directors and 11 writers makes for a somewhat discombobulated story. Some of Jane's stories jump into alternate realities, some are surreal, and some are honest. Without a doubt, both for Jacobs and the writing and directing talent, this film will be used as a calling card to obtain more work. From a mainstream point of view, Jeong's piece will be the one everyone ends up talking about, as it reunites Community's sometimes-couple Britta (Jacobs) and Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) and includes McHale's most grounded performance to date. Other than that, for most folks, this one isn't a must-see.
