Louis just found the corpse of a man in front of his apartment building. Taken in for custody by Captain Buron, he finds himself on the wrong end of a strange interrogation.

DJ-turned-director Quentin Dupieux has crafted a handful of dark comedies — Steak, Rubber, Wrong, Wrong Cops and Reality that are equal parts Michel Gondry, Tex Avery and the Coen brothers, with banal storylines that suddenly take strange, surrealistic and violent turns into the unknown. His latest work continues in that vein, set almost entirely in a police precinct that exists in some kind of late-’70s time warp.

 

Reviews

Keep An Eye Out is a hilarious interrogation of life, in all its mundanity, as a stage for the shlumpily surreal.
Am absurd and often surreal comedy with some clever ideas tucked away inside.
Many absurd delights, running the gamut from wordplay to slapstick and back again, all performed with an air of dedicated lunacy.
