RUBBER is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, and suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses terrifying telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. At first content to prey on small desert creatures and various discarded objects, his attention soon turns to humans, especially a beautiful and mysterious woman who crosses his path.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Your enjoyment of French filmmaker Quentin's Dupieux's movie depends in large part on your capacity to enjoy the absurd. I enjoyed it quite a bit."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
""Rubber" is a silly thing. But it doesn't stop at silly."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The greatest meta movie about a killer tire ever made."
‑ Chase Whale, Gordon and the Whale
"Rubber won't be everyone's cup of tea, but as curios go, it's among the more watchable movies about killer tyres you're likely to see this year."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"The result is something akin to Luis Bunuel or Samuel Beckett making a 70s exploitation film."
‑ Beth Accomando, KPBS.org
"Rubber will undoubtedly be the best film about a round, hollow serial killer released this year."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"More a deadpan art provocation than a real movie, Rubber is spun out like a musical theme through a series of variations."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The killer tire concept is great and the bizarre humor works very well, making this a wholly enjoyable film."
‑ Amy Curtis, We Got This Covered
"The 82-minute film feels a bit stretched, but not as much as you'd expect with a premise this odd."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"Audicious and wonderfully offbeat ... it's a fun one to talk about -- if only for the opportunity to shake your head in amused disbelief at what you just saw."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"If "Rubber'' was half as smart as it is clever, we might be talking gonzo midnight four-star classic here."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Goofily amusing for 85 minutes, and a fitting B-feature to the E.T. comedy "Paul.""
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"This is a movie about how watching movies is stupid."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"a hipster movie, affectedly exhausted and cocksure with no justification for it. And like anything hipster, you sort of want to kick it in the teeth."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"This movie is totally fantastic."
‑ Grae Drake, Movies.com
