I'm totally serious! Rubber is really a film a a killer tire with psychic abilities. Does this not sound like one of the craziest movies you've ever heard of? I have to see it! The film was directed by Quentin Dupieux, and it will play at the Cannes Film Festival this month for the International Critic’s Week competition.
Here is the short synopsis given by the Semaine website:
In the Californian desert, an incredulous audience attends a telepathic tire’s adventures which is mysteriously attracted by a beautiful young lady. An investigation begins.
Quiet Earth then provides an another translated synopsis from the movies facebook page which goes something like this:
Rubber is the story of a tire named Robert who, after discovering a pile of burning tires, decides to avenge his people by blowing up people’s heads … like tires.
Dupieux had this to say about his new film,
I’m still naïve enough to believe that there is still room for unconscious and format-free films…The too formatted films, structured as emotional machines, annoy me. I like the idea of doing a film on a living tire, with no narrative structure nor dramatic stakes. It’s possible! Also, The budget was very limited : I conceived the script, taking into account our means, and I like working like that a lot.
This movie just looks like it could end up being a ton of fun. I hope that one day we will get a chance to see it, even if it only goes strait to DVD. Check out the teaser trailer for the film below and let us know what ya think! How great and weird does this movie look!?
