Wrong Cops


Quentin Dupieux´s Wrong Cops: Chapter 1 premiered at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival as a 13-minute short film, featuring rock star Marilyn Manson as a victim of indecent exposure, arrested and abducted by a corrupt police officer for having bad taste in music. Wrong Cops expands this hilarious short into a feature length film about a motley group of cops trying to get rid of a body that one of them shot by mistake. Filled with the outlandish, borderline insane surreal comedy Dupieux gleefully exploited in his two previous features, Rubber (2010) and Wrong (2012), Wrong Cops features a stellar ensemble cast of comedians, actors and musicians including Eric Warheim (Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Arden Myrin (Bachelorette), Marilyn Manson, and Ray Wise and Grace Zabriskie (who played Laura Palmer’s parents on Twin Peaks)! These cops may be wrong, but it all feels so right … (Dir. by Quentin Dupiex, 2013, USA, 82 mins., Not Rated, IFC Midnight) Digital
