A clever premise gets plenty of comic blood and violence, but its hampered by some questionable storytelling techniques from director Quentin Dupieux. Read critic reviews

    Through binoculars, a band of spectators in the desert watch the story of a sentient telekinetic tire who kills, for no reason. Strange, meta-clever and pretty damn funny, if you get the joke (which admittedly demands an odd and rare sense of humor).

    This movie is happening in a California desert but is actually a bizarre French comedy about a tire that comes to life and kills people with its psychic powers. I know... I know... that is what I thought at first... but this outstanding piece of work directed and written by Quentin Dupieux deserved to be shown at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. A movie which is a homage to "no reason" - I never thought of that being possible - but I stay corrected! indieWire called the film "one of the more bizarre experiments with genre in quite some time." and that it "does begin to wear out its welcome around the sixty minute mark, but you can't blame Dupieux for giving it a shot." I fully agree with that statement - he wanted to do it and did it the best way he knew how. I would prefer it in shorter version, though... story has a feel being stretched to the max. It had feeling of intellectual wanking but not even close to the scale of Tree of Life because this movie was disguised as a B-film of the lowest order. If you thought it would be a good idea to watch a spoof which uses the very same footage he mocks, and enjoying smart movie fit for the absurdist theatre with its silliness - choose this one!

    You will not find much horrific or frightening about this film, assuming you're not too sensitive and have been exposed to a horror film before in your life. I see this film to be more of an exploitation / comedy film. It's a film about a killer tire's journey as a killer tire, while you have an audience well equipped with binoculars watching along with you. The movie was clever and amusing, and I did enjoy watching through it. Personally, I found this film to be more enjoyable than the mediocre (though I do admit it has it's place in horror history) "Scream."
