“French DJ-turned-filmmaker Quentin Dupieux (aka Mr. Oizo) has made a cinematic career out of films that are hard to classify, usually skewing between genres with a decidedly absurdist bent. — Set inside the confines of a 1970s-tinged police station (aside from flashbacks and a fittingly bizarre opening credits scene), Keep an Eye Out unfolds over the course of a gratingly long stop-and-start interrogation headed up by Chief Inspector Buron (Man Bites Dog’s Benoit Poelvoorde), a self-serious, bombastic investigator who can’t even make his own dinner plans without help from his interrogation subject. — Dupieux keeps things lively by firing off absurdist gags in every way possible. The dialogue is sharp and witty — If you’ve got a taste of Dupieux’s particular brand of structured madness, Keep an Eye Out will likely have you howling in your seat between the film’s more measured moments.” – Haleigh Foutch / Collider
