RubberTireLast week your mom told me about a movie -- "Rubber." This movie has it all:


Sentient Auto Parts

Trashy Motels with Swimming Pools

Mock Contempt of the Proxy Audience



A Sentient Tricycle

Fourth Wall Annihilation

It was written and directed by Quentin Depieux, whom you may remember from absolutely nothing. The description sucked me right in. SPOILER ALERT! Don't read the next line if you want to be surprised when you sit down with your big bowl of popcorn.

RubberHead"A sentient tire rolls through the desert, using the power of its mind to make small animals -- and human heads explode."

Did you read the spoiler? You might as well; there's no chance in hell that you're going to watch this movie. I did though, and I enjoyed it. It's refreshing to see a movie where the director wants you to love him while he's telling you that he hates you. Not you, actually, he might not hate you. He only hates the dumb audience, the too young audience, the too intellectual audience, the greedy audience, and the demanding audience. Assuming that you don't fall into one of those categories, perhaps he doesn't hate you.

I watched it on Showtime, but I see that it's now on Netflix (watch instantly or disk) as well. Check it out if you like. You won't. Say hi to your mom for me.
