Movie Info

Walter Baker is an eccentric, multi-instrumentalist struggling to maintain balance between creating art, making ends meet and raising his twelve year old son with his third wife, a poet. Artistically and philosophically situated on the fringes of mainstream culture, Baker grasps to bear the roles of family

Gliding from intimate to surreal, from aurally disjunctive to visually seductive, "Rubberband" is a languorous ballad of sadness and disappointment.

Without any engaging small-scale human drama or larger social or culture-clash import, the film comes across as trivial, and too often also indulgent and pretentious.

It's as though the director, like his subjects, was too comfortable in the safe familiarity of the surface to find the place where it betrays us.
