Ever wonder what’d happen if a tire came to life and started killing people? That’s funny—neither have we. Maybe that’s because we’re not as thoroughly twisted as Quentin Dupieux, the director of Rubber, a B-movie with the following ‘what the fuck?’ plot: “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 telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. At first content to wreak havoc on small desert creatures and various lost items, his attention soon turns to humans, resulting in the most gory vehicular-related mayhem inflicted on screen by an ‘inanimate’ object since Christine.”
The root of Robert’s evil can be found after the jump, and snippets of Rubber‘s soundtrack (produced by Gaspard Augé of Justice and Dupieux’s Mr. Oizo alias) are available for streaming on the left, including Flying Lotus’ “Unprotected Sex Mix” of the film’s title track.
