Writer-director Quentin Dupieux makes some very weird movies. His film Rubber, about a killer tire, was as absurd as moviemaking gets, but this one, about some sloppy and unorthodox cops, is damn strange in its own right. Mark Burnham plays Duke, a dirty cop who sells weed stuffed into dead rats on the side. He picks up street children (one played by an unrecognizable Marilyn Manson) and makes them very uncomfortable. He shoots people and sticks their dying bodies in the trunk while they beg for music. (Yes, they beg for music to give them something to focus on during their last, dying breaths.) The film has no real plot. It’s just a setup for strange, strange behavior. I found myself laughing a lot, especially when Eric Wareheim’s perverted cop was on the screen, but this isn’t for everybody. Proceed with caution. If you saw and liked Rubber, chances are you are going to like this one, too.
