Review of Rubber
by Justin Purwitsky
Posted on June 21st, 2020
Positive 7
Overall Rating
ever since i heard about this film i have wanted to watch it. i bought it a while back and finally, finally watched it the other day. and i can't say i wasn't disappointed and i can't say i wasn't. this film starts out weird and only gets weirder. it's enjoyable and the cinematography is first rate. the effects too are stellar and really bring the tire (robert) realistically to life. i was expecting a horror film here but it really isn't one at all. instead it's a weird pastiche of other genres (including horror) but is mostly a comedy. did i mention it is weird? the film purports to be an ode to the 'no reason'. so things happen for no reason and the tire is alive for no reason and it really exists for no reason but that in itself makes the film not as good as it should/could/wants to be. the film doesn't make sense in the end, or the beginning and is kind of strange throughout. it's post modern, philosophical, meta, self referential ideas play throughout but never come off as more than a gimmick. case in point, the opening monologue about film moments that happen for no reason. while a funny idea, the points made make no sense as most of them happen for a reason and even if they didn't the films based around those moments have reason. so rubber, in the end, is a fun, weird, strange, odd and entertaining if self indulgent and less clever than it thinks it is kind of film. it's worth watching, it's not a bad film, but it just didn't come close to the hype and praise others seem to have given it. 71/100
