Rubber remains my favorite movie about a homicidal tire on the loose. The tire gave a more nuanced performance than anything delivered by Robert DeNiro. Now director Quentin Dupieux has returned with another bit of cinematic weirdness called Reality. The film arrives on Blu-ray this September 15. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
A Film by Quentin Dupieux
Available September 15th, 2015 from Shout! Factory
From innovative auteur Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong Cops) comes the surreal comedy Reality, a playful, high concept romp through the entertainment industry featuring a mysterious VHS tape, a giant rat, and killer televisions.
Available September 15th, 2015 from Shout! Factory in partnership with IFC Midnight, Reality stars Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory) and Eric Wareheim (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) in this head-spinning Hollywood satire. Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting ShoutFactory.com
In the alternate reality of the entertainment industry, quiet cameraman Jason (Alain Chabat, Mood Indigo) finds a wealthy producer who agrees to finance his film, under one condition. Jason has to pull off the impossible: find the world’s most perfect groan sound effect for the movie in the next 48 hours, or it doesn’t get made. As he embarks on a hilariously bizarre odyssey, fact, fiction, reality and dreams collide in a surreal swirl of comic absurdity. With brilliant turns by top comedians, Reality is a wondrously weird and wild ride through director Quentin Dupieux’s extraordinary imagination.
