Rubber is one of those movies that, when you read the premise, makes you go “WTH” but then, once you’ve watch the movie, you’re like, “WTF?”
That is about as descriptive as I can be with this film…
Despite that, the acting and cinematography are much better than other films in its weight-class. A lot of love and consideration went into the making of this film. It’s seriously one of the only reasons we were able to watch it through to the end.
It’s also a little wonderful that this tire has more character development attention provided to it than 80% of movies coming out today. No, you don’t really get to a point where you empathize with the tire… but you do get the warm and fuzzies every time it learns something. Well, unless it’s learning to kill the fuzzies.
Our recommendation is that you watch this movie if:
A. You are super bored.
B. You want to experience a different kind of cinema.
C. You friends make you.
