While for many, the Cannes Film Festival means reading about it from afar, wishing all the buzzworthy films would arrive in theaters near you soon. But there's at least one entry this year that won't be exclusive to those on the Croisette. Edgy filmmaker Quentin Dupieux has ventured to the Directors' Fortnight sidebar with his short film "Wrong Cops," and just as it premiered in theaters there today, it landed online at the same time. How 2012.

While for many, the Cannes Film Festival means reading about it from afar, wishing all the buzzworthy films would arrive in theaters near you soon. But there's at least one entry this year that won't be exclusive to those on the Croisette. Edgy filmmaker Quentin Dupieux has ventured to the Directors' Fortnight sidebar with his short film "Wrong Cops," and just as it premiered in theaters there today, it landed online at the same time. How 2012.

Starring Marilyn Manson, Mark Burnham and David Lynch fave Grace Zabriskie ("Mulholland Drive," "Wild At Heart," "Twin Peaks"), the story follows Duke, a crooked, weed dealing, and music-mad cop who crosses paths with a young techno lover, David Dolores Frank (Manson). Appalled by the musical tastes of the young adolescent, Duke decides to give him a good music lesson. So yeah, it starts with a dead rat with duct tape around it and gets weirder from there.

It is referred to as "Chapter 1," so we presume there is more to come from Dupieux in his latest venture, but either way, he's off to the zany start fans expect and love from the helmer. Turn up your speakers and watch it below.
