Rubber, 2010

Rubber, 2010
Director: Quentin Dupieux
Cast: Stephen Spinella, Roxanne Mesquida, Wings Houser

Stage: Laptop scene @home

Rubber in short: When Robert, a tire, discovers his destructive telepathic powers, he soon sets his sights on a desert town; in particular, a mysterious woman becomes his obsession.

Preps: One in the oven, waiting anxiously for my attention. Though I don't know anything about it..

Reality: Well.. Well.. was left speachless after ten minutes. The same thing after twenty, thirty, three quarters of an hour.. With open mouth I am thinking whether to label this one as total bullshit or quite the opposite.
In most of the scenes you have a vengeance full tyre, heading around and exploding, or to be more exact, making other things explode. With a funny posture the tyre takes just before the crime, it makes things that come in its way, dead in some seconds or in quite a short time.

The piece is set like a filming spot, with an audience which resembles a school crowd you could take from a film academy, looking at what the movie is supposed to be filmed with /or how it is supposed to be made. The other side of the coin is the adventure you have with tyre and its obsession with a perticular lady it fancies. Does a tyre fancy anything? The piece implies that it has a soul and its own brains. Which is highly unlikely and furthermore, highly unlikeable. I decide the movie isn't worth my attention. The poisoning of the crowd? Pretending that it's a movie inside the movie? The last, but not least.. the tyre having a soul? I don't think so. Erase.

My personal rate: 1,0 (I was intrigued and amused at the beginning, but it got on my nerves quite quickly).
