From writer/director Quentin Dupieux (Rubber), the low-budget comedy Wrong follows Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) after he wakes up one morning to find that he has lost his dog, Paul. Desperate to reunite with his best friend and to set things right, Dolph embarks on an awkwardly funny journey that is often bizarre and absurd, but always oddly entertaining.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, filmmaker Quentin Dupieux talked about what led him to become a filmmaker, finding the links between random elements, how his main goal as a writer is to entertain himself, why he wanted to address themes of love through the relationship between a man and his dog, maintaining the perfect balance between comedy and anxiety, and why he likes to be his own cinematographer. He also talked about when the idea for Wrong Cops (about a group of bad cops looking to dispose of a body that one of them accidentally shot) evolved, his French-language film Réalité, the super silly film he is working on writing next, and how surprised and happy he is about the reaction he got to Rubber. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
