I didn't like Rubber much, but the movie had some really good moments, so I decided to give the director's new movie a try. It turned out to be far more suited for me - I couldn't stop laughing during this one, and kept smirking to myself with remembered scenes for a few days afterwards. All of the enjoyment of this movie comes from layered absurdity - notable because of the artfulness of the situations (it definitely isn't American slapstick). Speaking of artfulness, the movie has a very pleasant bout of cinematography and soundtrack, making it a very well rounded comedy. I'll be sticking it back in my player more than a few times.

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.

Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) wakes up one morning to realize that his beloved dog Paul has gone missing, but that's the least of Dolph's problems. His life only begins to get weirder and practically spirals down the drain as he crosses paths with his gardener Victor (Eric Judor), a pizza delivery girl named Emma (Alexis Dziena) who becomes obsessed with Dolph, a strange detective named Ronnie (Steve Little), the mysterious Master Chang (William Fichtner), and Dolph's jogger-in-denial next door neighbor Mike (Regan Burns). Meanwhile Dolph just wants to find his dog.

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).

If you're not familiar with Quentin Dupieux, you can start slowly. Watch a few of the music videos he made for his own music (Mr Oizo) as well as for others. Assuming that you had a good laugh and/or that your head started to shake on the beat, you may be ready for what's next.

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.

Absurdist agendas are designed to be met with confusion; It is the most basic aspect of their design and orientation towards an imagined audience, and Quintin Dupieux (AKA the equally absurd recording artist and remixer, "Mr OIzo") is a master of the form, not the exception. Absurdity, however, is not limited to eliciting confusion, obviously, because some people are uncomfortable with the feeling, some are stimulated by the open-ended food-for-thought possibilities of meaning and the constant unexpected nature of this form, while others find a lot of humor in the absurd. Obviously we know which of these reactions is paramount for Dupieux, and that is humor. But, if we switch to a more terrifying absurdist, like David Lynch, humor is still in the mix, but it's more of a coping mechanism for the viewer to have an awkward laugh between tense music-driven scenes, because Lynch's work focuses on suspense first.

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.
