Rubber's Lover is just a mess of a movie, an attempt at pushing the boundaries of acceptable cinema that ends up making a mockery of its own self-important idealism.

Audience Reviews for Rubber's Lover

Those looking for a "pleasant" cinematic experience should look somewhere else. Nothing about Rubber's Lover is pleasant. It's 90-minutes of cinematic assault complete with, nudity, gore, jarring visual imagery, torture, music that is only music in the loosest sense of the term, and startling symbolism. It is not the feel good movie of the year. It is not a white-knuckled thrill ride. It is not like anything you've probably ever seen before, and for this reason alone it should be essential viewing for anyone out there looking for something new, different, and weird.

Cinema doesn't always have to be safe, and the films of Shozin Fukui prove this. If you're reading this far, odds are that something about Rubber's Lover intrigues you. It's certainly not for the masses, but if you're a cinema fan with a taste for adventure and who doesn't mind a film that challenges its audience to actually use the gray matter sitting between their ears, then Rubber's Lover is definitely something that should be on your "must see" list.
