How does a director such as Quentin Dupieux follow up an outlandish, abandoned-tire-seeks-revenge film like RUBBER? By going even further down the rabbit hole in WRONG, a surreal comedy about a man trying to find his dog, but confronted with questions, situations, and characters that defy explanation. WRONG is the ninth film to be distributed by Drafthouse Films, and the first we have had the opportunity to play here at Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, and we’re excited to open it on March 29th.
WRONG follows sadsack hero Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick), who wakes up to find his beloved dog, Paul, is missing. Desperate to reunite with the love of his life, Dolph takes to the streets, but the quest for Paul rapidly spirals into the realm of the strange and inexplicable. A grubby pet detective (Steve Little) offers his services, which center on transmissions received from Paul’s poop. A gardener keeps calling him about a palm tree, insisting that what he has to share is so serious, it can’t be said over the phone. A promiscuous pizza girl (Alexis Dziena) decides Dolph is the man for her. A jogging addicted neighbor’s life is forever altered. And above it all floats the acid-scarred Master Chang (William Fichtner), who attempts to teach our hero how to metaphysically reconnect with his lost pet.
Westword calls WRONG a “sweetly unnerving experiment” and “an almost-stoned daydream, [where] the existential sweats of Lynch and Kafka here adopted as a comic mode.” Experience Dupieux’s visions for yourself starting March 29th. Tickets are on sale now.
