RUBBER (2010)… Why did we Queue this one up? No reason. Actually, just the opposite! This bizarre black comedy from Writer/Director Quentin Dupieix is a conversation starter for sure. The old saying about “this is where the rubber meets the road” takes on a new and sinister meaning as an old tire appears in a California desert, and under its own power it begins rolling down the road, stopping and starting as it pleases. The notion that the tire can operate under its own power isn’t half as remarkable as its other talent – the tire has telekinetic abilities and can make things explode at will, including human heads. The evil tire goes on a killing spree after its affections for a beautiful woman are thwarted, and local lawman Lt. Chad steps forward to investigate. Meanwhile, a handful of people aware of the tire and its actions are watching it from a safe distance until they’re poisoned by a mysterious villain; one of them manages to survive, and is looking for some revenge of his own. . Rubber was an official selection at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival and has since rolled it’s way into “cult” status. Listen to see where the 5 of us parked our reviews, THAT and our Top 3 “…. No reason”
