Quentin Dupieux isn’t known for making the sanest movies. The director of Rubber and Wrong excels at the absurb, and his latest film, Wrong Cops, might even top his previous two films. Here’s the twist. The film isn’t done. However, he’s premiering the first 45 minutes of the film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. To celebrate the occasion, he has released a teaser trailer for the film. Featuring Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim, Jonathan Lajoie and many others, check it out below. Read More »

We’re just over a month away from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and I can almost feel the slushy snow seeping through my boots already. The line-up is already incredibly impressive, as it includes world premieres of Ashton Kutcher in jOBS, the new Shane Carruth film Upstream Color, Richard Linklater‘s Before Midnight; and the horror sequel S-VHS just for starters. (Click on those links to read our coverage of each film so far.)
Plus, the real gems of the festival are rarely the movies you’ve heard of beforehand. Who heard of Beasts of the Southern Wild before last year’s festival?
Sundance has just add four new movies to the already impressive line-up and each is weirder than the next. One is about the birth of a musical genre featuring the biggest names in music, the next features Michael Cera traveling to Chile, the third is an in-progress film by Rubber and Wrong director Quentin Dupieux starring Marilyn Manson and Eric Wareheim and the last is one of the most influential films to ever come out of the festival: a return screening of Robert Rodriquez‘s El Mariachi.

I’ve come to really admire director Quentin Dupieux, the man behind the films Rubber and Wrong. I love the way he both respects rules and throws them out the window on a regular basis. He goes where his ideas take him, and I find his movies to be tremendously entertaining as a result. I don’t know if I’ve laughed so consistently at any mainstream comedy this year as I did at Wrong.
So he’s the guy I want to see putting Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jon Heder in a rat suit. The reason — inasmuch as Dupiex needs one, which is to say “there is no reason” — is the film Realite, which Dupiex has just completed. That’s one of two recently finished films, actually, the other being Wrong Cops, which was previewed at Cannes this past spring. Get some more info on both films below. Read More »
