The latest deranged delight by French absurdist Quentin Dupieux, Keep An Eye Out is a breakneck-paced cop comedy starring Belgian funnyman Benoît Poelvoorde (Man Bites Dog) as Commissaire Buran, a good, bad cop interrogating Fugain (Grégoire Ludig), an average Joe who has discovered a dead body outside his apartment building.

As the film begins, Fugain must explain how and why he happened to leave home seven times in one night before coming across a corpse in a puddle of blood.

From the opening sequence to the triple-meta denouement, Dupieux’s whip-smart script disregards expectations, the fourth wall, and the laws of time and space.

In French with English subtitles. Not Rated. Director: Quentin Dupieux (France 2018) 73 min.

Available for streaming at Smith Rafael and at Roxie Theater
