Review: Quentin Dupieux's Reality, Not Just Another Headscratcher

30 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

French DJ-cum-filmmaker Quentin Dupieux, aka Mr.Oizo, invaded the cinema landscape rather abruptly through his Dadaistic effort Rubber, following a killing tire in a twisted slasher formula. The comic element aside, Dupieux knew what he was up to since the first minute, not only in the opening scene of Rubber, featuring its unforgettable manifesto "No Reason," but also in his films to come. (He had previously tried his hand at filmmaking in the unfinished Nonfilm and the adequately bizarre comedy Steak.)Rubber marked a new chapter in the filmmaker´s career building his own topsy-turvy world. Wrong demonstrated his potential, not only through the absolutely ridiculous story of a dog-obsessed protagonist but mostly through the stylistic and formal solutions that blended into Dupieux´s personally-bred brand of poetics.

Reality Review

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux has made a career out of blurring the lines between ambition and utter lunacy, vouching for those who argue that beauty and chaos go hand-in-hand. I’ll confess that Rubber and Wrong hold a special place in my heart, but his latest film, aptly titled Reality, might be where I hop off this gonzo train of absurd, nonconforming, dreamlike voyeurism. As you can assume, Dupieux’s hazily overexposed interpretation of reality is anything but “normal,” as we’re once again caught in multiple character arcs that are pieced together by – well, I can finally say I have no ‘effing idea how everything comes together. Rubber addresses cinematic cultures, and Wrong chases a dog, but Reality introduces a nightmare that we never wake up from no matter how hard we try.

There’s no point in explaining a plot that’s non-existent, but here’s the short-hand version. »

Reality (Réalité) | Review

30 April 2015 6:15 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Quentin Dupieux's Reality is the stream of consciousness of a mad cinematic scientist, intertwining the perspectives of Jason (Alain Chabat), Reality (Kyla Kenedy), Zog (John Glover), and Henri (Eric Wareheim) to the point of sheer mindfuckery. While keeping with the absurdist tendencies of Rubber and Wrong, Reality is heavily dosed with the meandering dream logic of surrealism. Showcased in a brilliant menagerie of dreams, films-within-films and presumed realities, Reality abides by Dupieux's mantra of "no reason" as it fluidly contorts into a rat's nest of narrative threads, simultaneously unfolding and folding within itself like a M. C. Escher illustration. »

Review: Quentin Dupieux's 'Reality' Is A Mind-Itch Worth Scratching

29 April 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And if it is broke, no harm in breaking it further. After the modest, cultier-than-thou successes of killer tire movie “Rubber” and lost dog odyssey “Wrong,” perpetual student filmmaker Quentin Dupieux returns with another iteration of his very narrowly defined field of expertise with “Reality” (you probably guessed that is a mildly ironic title). Surprisingly though, while he’s ploughing the same old furrow of deadpan sight gags with the color grade set to "stonewash" and disjointed moments of droll absurdity, “Reality,” if you're in the right frame of mind, is actually pretty good fun, thanks to a clutch of enjoyable performances and a healthy dose of not taking itself even remotely seriously. In the film's puzzle-box structure, justified by essentially being set in a network of dreams and movies (and dreams-within-dreams and movies-within-dreams-within-movies), very occasionally Dupieux puts together something that adds up to slightly more. »

Watch The International Trailer For Rubber Director's Realite!

27 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Whether you love him or hate him there's no arguing the fact that there's simply nobody else quite like Rubber and Wrong director Quentin Dupieux these days. The musician turned director has been baffling and / or delighting audiences around the globe with his drily absurd sense of humor for a good few years now and he did the same at the Venice film festival this past year when he premiered his latest effort, Realite.Boasting an international cast that includes Alain Chabat, Eric Wareheim and Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder. As usual for Dupieux this one resists meaningful synopsis - plot points really aren't the point of a Dupieux film - but here's how Venice described it:Jason, a quiet cameraman, dreams of directing his first horror...
