Commissaire Buran is a bumbling cop interrogating Fugain, an average Joe who discovered a dead body outside his apartment building. Fugain must, on an empty stomach, explain how and why he happened to leave home seven times in one night before coming across a corpse in a puddle of blood. The surreal interrogation lasts all night, with each question more outrageous than the last.

It’s a mildly amusing trifle, but Dupieux has already made several of those. It’s one thing not to challenge your viewers, but another not to challenge yourself — something Dupieux has shown little interest in doing.


Austin Chronicle by Josh Kupecki

If you are unfamiliar with Dupieux’s cinema of meta shenanigans, Keep an Eye Out serves as a solid starting point. For those already indoctrinated, it’s another welcome dispatch from cinema’s premier purveyor of perplexing paradoxes.


The A.V. Club by Mike D'Angelo

Like a Saturday Night Live sketch that airs in the show’s final 10 minutes, Quentin Dupieux’s Keep An Eye Out tosses around ridiculous comic ideas as if secure in the knowledge that few people will ever see them.

63 by Nick Allen

For all that goes into making a movie—the prolific Dupieux wrote, directed, shot, and edited this one as with his previous films—the impulsive, scattered storytelling here almost feels like an unrewarding and contrarian statement to such hard labor.


Boston Globe by Ty Burr

There’s not a lot of depth to Keep an Eye Out, but there is a singular vision at work and at play.
