Motion Picture Purgatory: Rubber
As they say, all good things come to those who wait, and if you've been waiting for Trembles' take on Quentin Dupieux's bizarre little film Rubber, then you're in luck as it's the topic of this week's Motion Picture Purgatory.
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.
