    Rubber has its share of jollies, at least when it isn't boring us to death with the fourth-wall-busting monkey business. Although I appreciate Dupieux's efforts at satire, the audience-interaction subplot goes nowhere fast. show more

    With a homicidal tire as the main character, the film isn't scary enough to qualify as horror and not nearly as amusing as a black comedy should be. show more

    Rubber could have been a modest horror novelty, a wicked, malevolent version of "The Red Balloon." show more

    What sets Dupieux's film apart is its unexpected secondary dimension: an absurdist meta-commentary on cinema itself that hilariously articulates the notion that the movies stop existing the moment we stop watching, like the sound of an unobserved tree falling in the forest. show more

    Picture Monty Python writing an unusually odd "Twilight Zone" episode directed by surrealist Luis Buñuel. Or just empty your mind of all sense: This is Rubber. show more

    Rolls straight over silly, smashing through stupid without stopping and then barreling into a kind of insane comic brilliance without so much as a speed bump to slow it down. show more

    The carnage is cartoonishly graphic, but the onlookers watching through binoculars from a nearby sandy bluff are impressed. show more

    Though it's undoubtedly ingenious, for such a clever movie, it's a shame Rubber couldn't be more fun. show more

    Maybe Rubber is an homage, maybe it's a statement on horror films and their audiences, maybe it's a total goof. show more
