Few nice ideas. Should've been a short.

...plays like a drunken mash-up of Beckett, Troma and Hitchcock. Dupieux knows how to riff on the behavior and language of cinema but isn't clever or outlandish enough to sustain his film's 85-minute running time.

Describing or discussing Rubber, a film about a telekinetic killer automobile tire, is apt to make it sound like an inspired bit of absurdist lunacy.

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

Nobody's safe -- least of all moviegoers -- with a killer tire on the loose.

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

the act of watching Rubber is reminiscent of attempting to eat an unpeeled orange in its entirety

People talk about the line between laughing with or at a movie. You don't laugh with or at Rubber. It laughs at you.

But the movie is short on surprise-it's not really wild enough. And well before its 85 minutes have elapsed, it runs out of gas.

Rubber turns out to be rather redundant, and the audience-within-the-film angle is milked to death, with its employment serving as a wink-wink meta-theory on the nature of filmmaking as well as a commentary on the voyeuristic nature of audiences.

It shouldn't have been more than a short..An ode to self-involved silliness and audience (and critical) gullibility.

Pic offers auds few reasons to want to see it beyond its one-joke premise.

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

Dupieux's idea, apparently, is that movie audiences are so stupid they'll consume anything, and the more tickets he sells for this arch little piece of junk, the more he'll be proved right. If I were you, I'd refuse to give him that satisfaction.
