Monday at FNC

With FNC about halfway done, our screen team reviews new films by Quentin Dupieux, Sophie Deraspe and Noah Baumbach – all of which are screening at the festival today.

Wrong does surrealism right

Wrong, the latest from French filmmaker and musician Quentin Dupieux, is one of the most ridiculous films I’ve seen in recent memory—in a good way.

The absurd world of Mr. Oizo

From the novelty single and video “Flat Beat,” feat. that scruffy headbanging puppet Flat Eric, to Ed Banger and French Touch 2.0 to cult feature films like Rubber, the work Mr. Oizo/Quentin Dupieux has been consistently confounding, funny and charming. Cult MTL quizzed him good, and received minimal ALL CAPS replies. So Oizo.
