Wrong Cops (2013)
Set in a crime-free Los Angeles where cops have nothing better to do than to sell drugs, make music, and extort money, Quentin Dupieux’s Wrong Cops is a brilliant demonstration of his trademark “no reason” filmmaking. It’s absurd, nihilistic, and very funny. The cast is great, including Eric Wareheim, Steve Little, Ray Wise & Marilyn Manson and the lesser-known but super talented Mark Burnham, Arden Myrin, and Eric Judor (who starred in Oizo’s Steak). Dupieux even scores the film himself as Mr. Oizo and the fantastic music serves as a hilarious plotline, with many characters either wildly praising or bashing it. A dying man is obsessed with finding out who makes such wonderful music, while a record executive calls it the worst shit he’s ever heard.
It’s a small movie, only 80 minutes long, but its wonderfully bizarre and sharp style has been a major source of inspiration. Quentin Dupieux approaches comedy from a Lynchian mindset, following his instinct and making it as surreal as possible. The result is a tone that’s so uniquely captivating and improving with each film. Wrong Cops is his fifth after Nonfilm, Steak, Rubber, and Wrong. A sixth film has already been shot, Réalité, and I’m dying to see it because I can’t wait for Mr. Oizo to hit his peak. He’s already an awesome electronic musician and steadily becoming the best absurdest filmmaker. Wrong Cops is a strong combination of both talents and one of my favorite films of the year.
i really want to see this
