Doing 'Wrong' Right

Double Dupieux? Don't mind if we do.

Doing 'Wrong' Right

In advance of his latest feature, Wrong, opening in theatres March 29, director Quentin Dupieux will be in town this weekend for a double feature and a Q&A.

His previous feature, Rubber, premiered at the Alamo Drafthouse's Fantastic Fest in 2010, so it's only fitting that he returns to the Drafthouse for a double feature of Rubber and Wrong. (Enter our contest for a chance to win tickets!)

At the time, Marc Savlov described Rubber as "part post-modern meta-thriller, part audience-baiting, fourth wall obliterator, and chock full o' Scanners-style erupting craniums, Schizopolistic dada panache, and mindfuckery galore." We're all anxious to see how Wrong will top that.

It's not out of the realm of possibility: The synopsis for Wrong involves a "promiscuous pizza delivery girl, a mentally unstable, jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, an eccentric pet detective, and most mysterious of all, an enigmatic pony-tailed guru." Yep.

You say Wrong; we say oh so right.

The Wrong and Rubber double feature with Quentin Dupieux screens Sunday, March 24, 7pm, at Alamo Drafthouse Village (2700 Anderson); an audience Q&A will follow. For tickets and more information, visit the Drafthouse website.
