Directed by Quentin Dupieux

France 2018 93 mins. In French with subtitles

After discovering a body outside his apartment complex one night, Louis (Grégoire Ludig) is brought into the local police station for questioning, only to find himself the chief suspect in the police commissioner’s (Benoît Poelvoorde) investigation. When fate brings Louis in proximity to yet another corpse, the absurdities begin to pile up in Dupieux’s (Rubber) lovingly odd tribute to French police procedurals. Winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 2018 Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. “Telling stories is something we do all the time, and there are many ways to go about it. Keep an Eye Out tears those conventions to pieces—and it’s fucking funny while it does it.” —Andrew Todd, Birth. Movies. Death.

Filmography: Rubber (2010), Wrong (2012), Reality (2014)

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
