Review: Rubber

Just because.

You've got to love it when in the first few moments of the film you are about to view, the character on screen breaks the 4th wall and tells you that the movie is going to serve absolutely no purpose. No fucking reason at all, just because. You can almost appreciate the honesty.

We're not the only ones watching this film, a large group of people standing in the middle of the desert with binoculars are as well. The film follows Robert, a tire. Yes, the tire has a name. He rolls around aimlessly and soon discovers he can make heads explode just by thinking about it. He tests it on a few animals first, then goes after humans.

The pacing of the movie is slower than slow. It would've probably made a better short film. I get what the director was trying to say and I appreciated the effort. I knew what this film was about going in, so I wasn't expecting the plot to be intriguing or the effects to be convincing. I got just what I figured I would.

Recommended: See it for free. This is a hard movie to recommend, because it's not a good movie, but it's not trying to be either. It's just there to be there.

Grade: C

  1. I really appreciate your review about the movie but sorry to say I don't like anything about this movie. I don't get what the director was trying to deliver. I don't find any sense in Rubber. The story is too slow. Don't watch it.
