Director Quentin Dupieux is also Mr. Oizo, who gave us that Levi’s schilling yellow puppet Flat Eric – but don’t hold that against him. His last film was the surreal and fantastic Rubber, the tale of a psychotic car tire (called Robert) with telekinetic powers embarking on a killing spree.
In addition to the main, fairly mad, premise, Rubber also had a cunning meta film thing going on, with a built in audience within the film watching events and probably one of the best opening monologues I can remember.
All of which makes me very eager to see his subsequent movie, Wrong. The plot has something to do with a man who has lost his dog and is involved in some sort of programme which involves him communicating with said canine. It looks deeply surreal and features a turn by the bloke who plays Stevie in Eastbound and Down.
I mean really, what’s not to like?
