Let’s cut to the chase: Quentin Dupieux’s “Rubber” looks fantastic, though I completely understand why certain readers may be a little reluctant to embrace a motion picture that follows the adventures of a disgruntled tire that frequently causes people’s heads to spontaneous combust. The latest trailer — which arrives courtesy of Twitch — gives prospective viewers a glimpse of the picture’s inherent sense of humor, which, I think, is essential to making this sort of movie work. Absurdity is generally best when served with a few knowing chuckles. Then again, that’s just my opinion.
Here’s hoping someone picks this thing up for distribution ASAP.
