Quentin Dupieux directs like David Lynch. On mushrooms. With a head injury. After reading a lot of Haruki Murakami. We promise we mean this in the best way possible, to both Dupieux and those struggling with traumatic brain injury. There are elements of the surrealist auteur's work in the off-kilter comedy "Wrong," from the sometimes dissonant, creepy score to the juxtaposition of the the mundane and the truly odd. But comparisons to the "Lost Highway" director aside, Dupieux is a filmmaker all his own whose mind clearly works in ways that most others' can't or won't. He embraces the weird with such glee and abandon, that it's hard not to shrug your shoulders, smile and join the group hug.
