This is a movie about a homicidal tire named Robert who has telekinetic powers and goes on a murder spree in a small desert town. Fuck if I know how, but even with a plot as ridiculous as that, this movie manages to make even less sense than it should. Even more baffling is that despite making absolutely no sense whatsoever, it also manages to be pretty damn entertaining.

Don't ask me what it's about, I don't have a clue, but from purely technical standpoint, it's an accomplishment. I loved the camera work, the effects were decent enough and all practical instead of cgi which made me very happy. I also loved that Rubber didn't take itself seriously in the least, in fact the first 5 minutes or so of the movie is one of the movie's characters basically telling you that there are thousands of examples in movies of things that happen for no reason and don't make any sense. In the end, even if you absolutely hated Rubber, if you saw the beginning, you can't say they didn't warn you.

I really don't have much else to say other than that. I basically got what I expected from Rubber. I knew it would be silly, and from what I had read, it sounded just stupid enough to be something that I could kill 80 minutes with. In all honesty, it turned out to be way better than I expected.
