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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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.

With playful self-reflexivity, Dupieux uses his central gimmick to satirize the nature of cinematic conceits.

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.

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

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

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.
March 28, 2011
A strikingly clever parody of bloody road thrillers of the nineteen-seventies...
