Wrong Reviews

April 19, 2013
There's a winning confidence to the filmmaking, which is deceptively stylish - Dupieux favours nervy close-ups and blurred foregrounds - and some real soul in Plotnick's performance.

Dupieux makes the viewer work for it with Wrong. And it's not always worth the effort ...

Dupieux has to be applauded for creating a unique universe, but sometimes he seems stuck in it - to the point where we feel we're not always in on the joke.

In Wrong, reality and the world of the film will regularly upend themselves; it's never quite reliably clear, though, that these inexplicable events are happening for a purpose.

Dupieux doesn't make films for everyone, but he does craft creative and abstract trips that are more than worth going on, even if they're fantastically difficult to explain to anyone who has yet to join the club.

Dupieux's absurdism is simply muddled, masking the fact he doesn't really have much to say.

It would take a firmer hand to right this "Wrong."

March 28, 2013
The key to making a movie like this work is for the characters to invest themselves completely in the weird little universe Dupieux has created for them, and they do.

There's a sly brilliance to the way Dupieux responds to audience expectation by repeatedly, pointedly violating Chekhov's Law.

March 28, 2013
Composed of skit-like scenes and populated by gimmicky characters, the movie is flimsy, glib, and occasionally pretty funny.

March 27, 2013
The film's heady buzz is invigorating, and there are substantial pleasures-and laughs-to be found in all its real-life-just-gone-sour strangeness.
March 26, 2013
As this wry, dry and glittering near-masterpiece proclaims, life is full of wrongness, but also full of mystery and wonder.

Yuck.

Those on its perpetually absurd wavelength should soon find themselves left in fits of giggles.

The search for a missing dog leads to weird discoveries in surreal semi-comedy.
January 24, 2012
It doesn't take long for the absurdist humor to pall among a pileup of nonsensical ideas that would be funnier if grounded in a less hazy concept.

There's a lot going on in Wrong that shows intelligence, imagination and artistry. But I'm afraid it's another "worthy effort"/"shows promise" kind of movie.
