In the California desert, the adventures of a telepathic killer-tire, mysteriously attracted by a very pretty girl, as witnessed by incredulous onlookers.
Film # 5/30 of Scavenger Hunt 4!
Task # 19 A Film About Inanimate Objects Killing Humans!
Following one of the most random pre credit openings I've ever seen, a lonely tyre with psychokinetic powers wakes up in the desert one morning and decides to go on a murderous rampage. A little unsteady on his tread to start with, he soon gets the hang of the whole rolling malarkey and sets off on his mission to watch the world burn.
A character states at the very beginning that some of the biggest films in history have no reason for some of the decisions they make, why was E.T. brown? why don't characters use the bathroom in The Texas Chainsaw…
The first 30 minutes or so I really felt that this was going to be my kind of weird. I loved the bizareness of the opening and the subsequent monologue. The first babysteps of the killer tyre were wonderful, but somewhere in the back of my mind a small voice was already starting to whisper things about this being too thin a concept for a full movie. I hate that voice because it's usually right.
An homage to 'No reason'. Starting your film by saying that it will have reason doesn't really give you the right to make it an unnecessarily boring one, devoid of any creativity or…
It is obvious this film will find a devoted following but it left me stone cold. It tries far too hard to be quirky whilst doing nothing interesting with the premise at all. At best this is a mildly entertaining short film but they stretch it far beyond what the concept will allow. Murderous inanimate objects are nothing new in cinema from The Refrigerator to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. None of these films are ever really great but they do provide some B-movie charms and still at least try and tell a story. Rubber on the other hand is a one-joke movie when the joke isn't all that funny to begin with.
Sure, the idea of a car tyre…

"Ladies, gentlemen, the film you are about to see today is an homage to the "no reason" - that most powerful element of style." - Lieutenant Chad
This is probably the oddest re-watch I've ever had. While my friend kept looking across at me, baffled, I just kept telling him that he was never going to get it, and that he should just stop asking questions and enjoy it for what it was. He calmed down, but didn't enjoy it at all. Personally, I loved it.
In fact, I love every inch of this.…
Well-crafted photography and a terrific score are spoiled by lousy writing and hackneyed gore effects that grew tiresome after the 3rd or 4th installation. Early on, I was fixated by the "tire" scenes, while I found the "spectator" side story completely superfluous. Some savvy editing and a rewrite of the 3rd act, and this could have made for a nice little 20-minute short. Instead, we get this pile of wasted competence.
Sort of a nice concept but completely wears thin and pops after about 30 minutes. This thing is not the awesome piece of genre fare that it could've been. Would've worked great as a short. Seriously, the novelty of watching a tire shake for a second and then seeing a head explode starts to really lose its lustre after the 15th take. Boring boring boring.
This was quite possibly the dumbest thing I've ever witnessed. It tried so hard to be one of those "so bad it's good" movies, but it was just bad. Iron sky is so bad it's good. This movie made me consider lying down on a 4 lane freeway.
While the film itself maybe hit-or-miss, the opening monologue is, in my opinion, one of the best of all time.
"This is an homage to no reason."
Flawless. I suggest a drinking game. No reason. Tyrone!
Esperaba que fuese tan bizarra como su premisa sobre una rueda asesina podría indicar y, en efecto, lo es. Lo que yo no esperaba es ese giro metacinematográfico con la subtrama de los espectadores y que dejara tan claras sus intenciones desde el principio. Una peculiar y divertida oda a la aleatoriedad.
Dupieux's need to keep cutting back to the audience watching the narrative unfold severely detracts from the impeccable filmmaking throughout the rest of the film - although this sequence actually begins to come into its own as well (even if it is too little too late): the audience beginning living their own first-world horror movie, none of their habitual comforts are provided for them and they are forced to watch a seemingly unstoppable reign of terror.
For now, my preferred 'plastic product comes to life and wreaks havoc' movie is the excellent, far-more-intelligent noir-horror Killer Condom.
I'm on a f'd up movie streak and I want it to end. Why? No reason.
Well I am not really sure what this is, I was told this would fall under the category of so good its bad, and it is not that, this movie is odd. So if you don't know its about a tire that has physic abilities and begins to use it, so yes the premise is completely outlandish. That being said there are actually high points in this film, for instance the beginning is pretty funny, and I'm almost positive this is trying to be bad. The problem is if it is trying to be bad it doesn't do a good enough job, its like they weren't self aware, and the acting isn't laughably bad. It would be cool to meet whoever came up with the premise. I wouldn't recommend unless you want something to make you question if it is self aware.
A meta tale about a tire exploding things with its mind, spectators, poison, the police and pizza. Nuff said.
I think I just compared my life to a tire's.
Aesthetic, fancy, and a bit bloody.
This is hilarious and fucking creative.
Anyone who can recommend film/s like this, please?
