It's always hazardous to compare a director to another but we'll have to agree that Quentin Dupieux is ideologically closer to Spike Jonze (being John Malkovitch) and Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine.../science of dreams) than he is to Michael Bay.
It's surreal, it's really well done, with good actors, great and efficient cinematography and a smart use of music ( that he's co-signing). It's sweet by times, really funny overral, and not like anything you've seen so far.
It's a director's work in a sense that Dupieux is behind the wheel with a total creative control (clap clap clap) and it's not for everybody and oh do we love that !
Each new movie is a milestone. "Wrong" is probably his most elaborated movie so far. I can't wait for the next one.
Dupieux has quite a one-of-a-kind style. Wrong and Rubber really stand out from the crowd. I wonder if he'll be sort of be like the "Wes Anderson" of comedic films.
Quentin Dupieux made the eccentrically absurd yet glorious film "Rubber" and birthed at least one lifetime fan because of it. It was because of that film that the anticipation for "Wrong" was so high. At its core "Wrong" is a more grounded film than "Rubber." Compare a telepathic car tire that makes people's heads explode to a guy looking for his dog and "Wrong" seems like a more traditional experience on the surface, but "Wrong" is actually way more out there than Dupieux's previous effort.
The film begins with a group of firefighters lounging around a fire truck as a van slowly simmers in flames. One of the firefighters starts texting while another drops trow and begins reading a newspaper. The score starts off as this tribute to 8-bit video game soundtracks, but slowly evolves into something more synth heavy that sounds like it's straight out of the 80s. Dolph's clock rolls over to 7:60 every morning and that blank letter he receives with nothing but a stamp on it is never addressed (best accidental pun ever).Read more ›
The film Wrong is not about randomness though. In many ways it is a very focused spoof of Lynch, right down to the score. By placing tense strings and forward-moving drum machines in just the right places, Dupieux manages to honor rather than mock Lynch, while at the same time entirely transforming the Lynchian brand of suspense film into the Dupieux brand of comedy.
It helps that the acting and camerawork here are executed with a precise chemistry that is entirely consistent with his prior film "Rubber." Of course Rubber also fits into the category of b-movie horror, because, well, you can't make a movie about a deadly tire and it only be considered a comedy; people's head's explode too much not to also place it alongside movies like "Sharknado."
However, with Wrong, it is 100% comedy, even more so than it is an indie or art film.Read more ›

Loved this film.
I was a fan of Rubber so I needed to get this. It was magical. I loved how the world was basically ours only slightly…wrong.
Classic lines, hilariously funny from beginning to end. Jack Plotnick and the dog Paul both outdid themselves. Eric Judor plays the role of a clueless French gardener.Published on November 4, 2013 by Youlah
