Review: Rubber

Xnewsman sends in this review of a weird move called Rubber. As you can see by the trailer above, it's star is a junk yard tire with telekinetic powers. I'm serious! Justin Lowe writing for the Hollywood Reporter / Mercury News writes in part:

  • Despite some marginally diverting sight gags, the repetition of exploding heads, horror-movie references and tire jokes grows far too thin much too quickly.
  • Dupieux, who writes, directs, shoots and edits "Rubber," is clearly extremely pleased with himself and his creation, although his obvious talent is exceeded only by his self-indulgence. Even "Rubber's" overly familiar meta-conceit of a film within a film falls short of raising the interest level.
