In this week's Geek I/O Rant and Review, we watch the 2010 film Rubber, the story of Robert, a sentient tire with telekinetic powers who goes on a killing spree. Yep.
Is having the audience as a character in your film a good idea? Can you really stretch the concept of no-reason-on-purpose into a feature length film? Who showers with the door open? What hotel has leopard print sheets? Is a tire getting hit by a truck irony?Where does one get a mannequin for their convoluted blow-up-the-tire plot? Why did that bunny have to die? No reason.
Join us on Geek I/O, won't you? We promise not to server you roadkill pizza.
