If you’ve been waiting since Sundance 2012, now’s the time to rejoice, for Wrong is on VOD. To celebrate the occasion — or find another way to promote their movie; either works equally — Drafthouse Films have released a clip from Quentin Dupieux‘s Rubber follow-up, quickly managing to show that the writer-director hasn’t lost his skills for conveying the strange.
As I’ll be checking out the movie in a day or two, it’s a conscious decision on my part not to watch this from start to finish — still, combing through has left me plenty amused. William Fichtner as a man with burns on half his face, spouting off dialogue in a Tony Montana impersonation? Good thing I have plans to see all that in proper context. If a proper context exists here.
Watch the clip below (via Apple):
Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) awakens one morning to find he has lost the sole love of his life—his dog, Paul. Desperate to reunite with his best friend and to set things right, Dolph embarks on a journey which spirals into the realm of the absurd. On his quest, he drastically alters the lives of several severely bizarro characters, including a promiscuous pizza delivery girl (Alexis Dziena), a mentally unstable, jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, an eccentric pet detective (Steve Little) and most mysterious of all, an enigmatic pony-tailed guru, Master Chang (William Fichtner) who imparts his teachings to Dolph on how to metaphysically reconnect with his pet. From fearless cinematic surrealist Quentin Dupieux, the director behind the head-exploding Rubber, Wrong is a wholly original and hilariously hallucinatory universe all its own.
Wrong will open in theaters on March 29th.
Does this clip endear you to the rhythms and mood of Dupieux’s film?
