Pierrot le fou takes us on a liberating journey where the notion of a destination ceases to exists. Instead, we are invited to simply be, and experience this journey for what it is, accepting whichever road it may lead us to, thus freeing ourselves from anything and everything.
"Pierrot le fou is sometimes seen as an early example of postmodernism in film. The film's postmodern elements include its parodic but affectionate attitude towards American pop culture, its deliberate mixing of high and low art, its frequent dissection of popular movie conventions, and its use of de-centered, collage-like narrative structure. The central character of Ferdinand also embodies Jameson's notion of the postmodern citizen as a victim of 'compensatory decorative exhilaration' or a mass media-addled mindset in which individuals lose the ability to distinguish truth from fiction or important issues from trivial ones."
