Your enjoyment of French filmmaker Quentin's Dupieux's movie depends in large part on your capacity to enjoy the absurd. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Rubber will undoubtedly be the best film about a round, hollow serial killer released this year.

If "Rubber'' was half as smart as it is clever, we might be talking gonzo midnight four-star classic here.

"Rubber" is a silly thing. But it doesn't stop at silly.

More a deadpan art provocation than a real movie, Rubber is spun out like a musical theme through a series of variations.

Goofily amusing for 85 minutes, and a fitting B-feature to the E.T. comedy "Paul."

An exercise in horrific absurdity that is neither as scary nor as amusing as it hopes to be.

Picture Monty Python writ ing an unusually odd "Twilight Zone" episode directed by surrealist Luis Bu˝uel. Or just empty your mind of all sense: This is "Rubber."

Either of the film's sides - the horror comedy or the post-modernist commentary - probably wouldn't be enough to sustain the movie on its own. But with both facets taken together, writer/director Quentin Dupieux can have his cake and deconstruct it too.

"Rubber" has anthropomorphic, head-scratching fun with its gory B-movie trappings, silly music cues, self-referential comedy and deliberately off-kilter acting.

By embracing irrationality as his operating principle (or at least by pretending to), Mr. Dupieux lets himself off the narrative hook.

While it's admirably perverse for a "killer-tire movie" to be this snooty, it's about half as clever as it thinks it is.

The potshots made at horror film audiences, and/or film audiences in general, are ... slipshod.

An essay on storytelling and spectatorship within When Inanimate Objects Attack schlock -- one infused with the haunting aura and disillusionment of a post-Easy Rider road movie -- Rubber is some kind of miracle.

A strikingly clever parody of bloody road thrillers of the nineteen-seventies...
