Director: Quentin Dupieux
The story of Robert, a murderous tyre with psychic powers.
It's not often something comes along that is completely original in concept, but Rubber is definitely the one-and-only film about a killer tyre.
When Robert - the aforementioned tyre - becomes the victim of unrequited love, his anger management issues and telekinetic powers erupt into carnage and violence.
A redefined road-movie-come-horror, Rubber attained instant cult-hit status upon screening at Cannes this year, attracting the attention of pundits of the absurd. Writer, director, cinematographer and composer Quentin Dupieux (aka music producer Mr Oizo) proves his talents in all manner of technical guises, as well as outing himself as one of the weirdest imaginations in the business.
