Preview by Brian Orndorf, March 28, 2013

“Wrong” is an offering of absurdity from writer/director Quentin Dupieux. The picture exists in a dreamscape of uninhibited conversations and ridiculous occurrences, yet it’s par for the course for the helmer, who made his international introduction with 2010’s “Rubber,” a movie about the adventures of a tire that rolled around the southwest killing people with telekinetic powers while a group of onlookers slowly succumbed to the effects of poisoned turkey. “Rubber” was an acquired taste but showed great imagination and a reverence for the bizarre. “Wrong” returns Dupieux to a position of oddity, although his latest enjoys a slightly more human touch.



Waking up one day to find his beloved dog Paul is missing, Dolph (Jack Plotnick) is overwhelmed with panic, unable to concentrate on his empty life. He has a neighbor (Regan Burns) who refuses to admit he’s a jogger, a job he was fired from three months ago that he continues to commute to, and an earnest gardener in Victor (Eric Judor) -- a Frenchman who doesn’t understand how a palm tree in Dolph’s yard suddenly turned into a pine tree. Receiving word that author and animal guru Master Chang (William Fichtner) has orchestrated the dog’s disappearance as a way to encourage a stronger bond between the pet and his owner, Dolph is disoriented, greeting Detective Ronnie (Steve Little), who’s been tasked with retrieving the pooch after Master Chang’s plan goes awry. Dolph also has to contend with Emma (Alexis Dziena), a pizza restaurant clerk who gives herself entirely to the man over the phone, only to hook up with Victor when the gardener assumes Dolph’s identity to score easy sex.

A student of experimental cinema and the warped world of David Lynch, Dupieux continues his exploration of the surreal and the silly with “Wrong,” a tilted ode to the passions of dog ownership and the panic of lost routine. It’s not a consistent picture in terms of tone or storytelling, but there’s much to appreciate here, with the director picking up where he left off with “Rubber,” stoking his fascination with deadpan behavior and bizarre occurrences, opening the film with the image of a fireman defecating on a rural road while a nearby van is ablaze. I’m not suggesting it’s a radical effort or even all that demanding in an interpretive manner, but “Wrong,” despite its off-putting opening scene, carries itself in a bright, curious manner that encourages deeper investigation into Dolph’s seriously messed-up week of misfortune.



Dupieux attacks “Wrong” with exaggeration, scripting dialogue exchanges as purges of thought, presenting characters unable to control their honesty as they explore their mental processes in a casually blunt manner. The characters don’t hide their curiosity or displeasure, creating some memorable confrontations along Dolph’s journey. There’s also a visual disturbance that’s inviting, following our hapless hero as he enters a traditional office workspace that’s continuously soaked by fire sprinklers, though the employees don’t seem to mind or notice, carrying on with laptops and envelopes. We also witness Detective Ronnie’s interesting methods of investigation, hooking up electrodes to a sample of Paul’s feces to extract the waste product’s last memory. Again, “Wrong” is out there, but the embellishments aren’t mean-spirited, remaining just silly enough to charm for the first two acts, with Dolph’s knowing acceptance of incongruity easing Dupieux’s sense of humor.

Performances help articulate the descent into this suburban wonderland, with Plotnick delivering a sturdy sense of unease and frustration as Dolph, grounding this brain-wedgie of a film in a feeling of urgency, playing up the basic human fear of a man who’s lost his best friend. The supporting cast is permitted more distorted characterizations, but remain highly amusing, including Fichtner’s Zen ways as Master Chang, an authority on canine telepathy using a childhood mistake with a jar of acid to build a literary empire. While broad in appearance, the actor makes the role a natural fit, also triggering a few needed laughs.



Assuming a distinctly Lynchian route of film reversal and panic in a realm of unreality for the finale, Dupieux has trouble landing “Wrong” as easily as he launches it, concluding the effort with ellipsis instead of a period. It’s disappointingly anticlimactic, showing strain with abstraction when the rest of the picture was perfectly capable of conveying idiosyncrasy in an instinctive way. However, the flat ending doesn’t neuter the convincing eccentricity of the piece, with “Wrong” remaining invested in subverting expectations and presenting illusions with commitment to a sociable insanity.
