Quentin Dupieux is working on something confusing yet again. This new “trailer” for Wrong Cops (not to be confused with his upcoming Wrong) seems broken in the conventional sense, but it all boils down to the way it’s being filmed.
Wrong Cops is being filmed in chapters as it is financed and screened. It sort of feels like a viral strategy as some of the “chapters” contain new cast members. But for the most part, it follows Mark Burnham as a bored Los Angeles police officer who harasses people (one of them even happens to be Marilyn Manson). The folks at Sundance this year get to watch 45 minutes of this while the whole thing should be “feature ready” this Summer. It’s certainly an interesting technique to say the least.
