(2010) Rubber

Rubber is a really clever comedy horror movie that both looks and sounds great. The movie opens with an immediate 4th wall break monologue that sets the clear comedic tone. The general plot surrounds a homicidal tire bent on destroying some desert town. There’s a subplot going on that I can’t figure out how to talk about without ruining a big part of the movie but it’s somewhat unique.

Rubber has a very Being John Malkovich vibe which I really appreciated.  A lot of the smarter satire movies use that kind of diegesis to be able to make fun of an entire made up universe (a horror film universe in this case) while inside said universe through fictional narrative. Jesus fuck, sorry if that was really confusing.

Now is this film good? There’s not too much doubt in my mind that it will spawn a small cult following but I can’t say I found it to be anything special. It needs a little PFFFTTTT or some ZZZZZZZ you know? I don’t even know what the fuck I’m talking about at this point.

5.5/10
