The latest deranged delight by French absurdist Quentin Dupieux (DEERSKIN, RUBBER), KEEP AN EYE OUT is a breakneck-paced cop comedy that packs more laughs into its 73 breezy minutes than some filmmakers manage in their entire careers. Belgian funnyman Benoît Poelvoorde (MAN BITES DOG) is Commissaire Buran, a good, bad cop interrogating Fugain, (Grégoire Ludig), an average Joe who discovered a dead body outside his apartment building. As the film begins, Fugain must, on an empty stomach, explain how and why he happened to leave home seven times in one night before coming across a corpse in a puddle of blood. Since he's the investigation's only suspect, Fugain's anxiety is already sky-high when Buran leaves him alone with Philippe, a one-eyed rookie cop with bizarre speech patterns and a few minutes to live. Bloody, demented hijinks ensue, and before long, we're in Buñuel territory. Between the opening sequence, when a man in red briefs conducts a philharmonic orchestra in the open air, and the triple-meta denouement, Dupieux's whip-smart script disregards audience expectations, the fourth wall and the laws of time and space. You'll never look at a protractor or an oyster the same way again. Winner, Best Screenplay, 2018 Sitges International Film Festival; Winner, People's Choice Award, 2018 Montréal Festival of New Cinema. Official Selection, 2018 Berlin Fantasy Filmfest, Fantastic Fest, Taipei and Night Visions film festivals.
