Movie Info

A Rubberband is an Unlikely Instrument is a lyrical exploration of a Brooklyn couple as they navigate their path amidst rapidly changing political, social, financial and spiritual landscapes. 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 man, business owner and aspiring composer. (c) Factory25

Critic Reviews for A Rubberband Is An Unlikely Instrument

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

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

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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.
