An aptronym, or charactonym, is when a person’s profession or career is aptly expressed by their strangely befitting name. For example, if your name is Anita Baker and you become bread-monger, or if your name is Dan Druff and you become a barber, then this constitutes an aptronym. So parents, if you want your baby boy to grow up and make audience dividing, debate inducing, genre defying, convention ignoring, style important, cult becoming movies, then, by all means, name him Quentin; French provocateur Quentin Dupieux was, and his films, including his latest, Wrong, are.
In Wrong, Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) wakes up at 7:60 am to find that his dog, Paul (Kuma), is missing. After a short debate with his neighbour Mike (Regan Burns) about jogging and morning fashion, a quick call to a newly opened pizza joint to discuss their »

Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux (Rubber), Wrong initially intrigues in its refusal to conform to convention, but tirelessly wears out its viewer throughout all of its banal aimlessness. The film’s world becomes predictably baffling and increasingly dull as we embark on a bizarre and unrewarding trek into the absurd and existential. The surreal has never felt so muted, so useless.
It was perhaps a huge disservice to not have seen Dupieux’s Rubber before diving into his latest effort. Certainly, there are those tickled and perhaps even moved by what Dupieux represents as a filmmaker, but the guy feels oddly too imaginative for his own good. Not only that, but his vision fails to conjure up any type of creative appeal that we haven’t seen before. Wrong is both familiar and foreign, as to override all expectations, »

In 2010, Quentin Dupieux's Rubber hit screen to critical acclaim. The acclaim was mostly along the lines of "The best killer tire movie you'll ever see." Despite its odd-ball premise and protagonist, Rubber did seem to have cohesive subtext about criticizing the audience and purposely messing with their expectations. By contrast, Dupieux's new movie, Wrong, is all killer tire and hardly anything to say. That's doesn't make it a bad flick. Strangeness along the lines of a killer tire can still be pretty funny, and Wrong's off-kilter reality offers plenty of laughs. It's just too silly and devoted to strangeness to make any an exploration of a convoluted subtext worth considering. Somewhere in all the bizarre behavior is a comprehensible plot. Dolph (Jack Plotnick) has lost his dog Paul and is desperate to find him. That's about as tethered as the movie gets to our reality. Around this understandable »

Title: Wrong Director: Quentin Dupieux Cast: Jack Plotnick, Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little, William Fichtner and Regan Burns Being absurd is almost always taken as a lark or gimmick when applied in movies. It automatically alienates audiences and leaves them uneasy with how the story is delivered. No one ever takes it seriously, but when done right, it can involve audiences, while at the same time giving them a good, heartfelt narrative. In the new film from French experimental filmmaker, Quentin Dupieux, “Wrong” embraces its absurdist nature and never apologizes for telling a story the way the director sees fit. It follows the story of Dolph Springer, a man »
