Synopsis


Rubber
The old saying about "this is where the rubber meets the road" takes on a new and sinister meaning in this black comedy from filmmaker Quentin Dupieux. An old tire appears in a California desert, and under its own power it begins rolling down the road, stopping and starting as it pleases. The notion that the tire can operate under its own power isn't half as remarkable as its other talent -- the tire has telekinetic abilities and can make things explode at will, including human heads. The evil tire goes on a killing spree after its affections for a beautiful woman (Roxane Mesquida) are thwarted, and local lawman Lt. Chad (Stephen Spinella) steps forward to investigate. Meanwhile, a handful of people aware of the tire and its actions are watching it from a safe distance until they're poisoned by a mysterious villain; one of them (Wings Hauser) manages to survive, and is looking for some revenge of his own. Rubber was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Not a fan

    This movie seems to play on the idea that "this is so crazy that it just might work." And it fails, in my opinion. I watched it twice and both times it just failed to keep my interest. Slow paced and nothing spectacular with the story telling.

    Not that you can really know for certain what to expect out of a movie such as this, I really didn't expect that at all. It was entertaining in it's own way, but really wasn't the movie I was hoping for.

    A little bizarre, definitely different, but what better time to watch than on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Don't take it too seriously though. I would recommend to some friends, but not all.

    One of those movies you would buy to use as target practice, totally inane movie. Had directors and stars names that sounded like tarantino, but wasn't. Remember to read your labels carefully.

    There is a unique and interesting concept behind this movie. Watch it and look past the tire to the deeper meaning.
