In the 2010 film "Rubber," directed by Quentin Dupieux, a group of people gather in the middle of the desert to witness a strange and unique event. In the distance, a tire lies abandoned in the sand, seemingly lifeless and unremarkable. But as the spectators watch, something incredible happens - the tire suddenly comes to life, and with it, a series of bizarre and terrifying events unfold.

As the tire begins to move of its own accord, crushing small objects and eventually larger ones, the people watching from afar are transfixed. Some are horrified, others amused, but all are unable to look away from the surreal spectacle. Meanwhile, a group of authorities attempt to track down and stop the tire before it can cause any further damage.

Throughout the movie, the tire moves across the desert landscape, encountering various obstacles and challenges that prove to be no match for its strange and otherworldly powers. As it continues its destructive rampage, the line between reality and fantasy becomes increasingly blurred.

The film is a genre-defying blend of horror, comedy, and surrealism, with a healthy dose of meta-commentary on the nature of storytelling and audience expectations. It plays with the idea of a "killer object" trope often seen in horror movies, while simultaneously subverting it in unexpected ways.

At the center of the movie is the tire itself, an unlikely but compelling protagonist. Played by a combination of practical effects and CGI, the tire develops a distinct personality over the course of the film, despite its lack of dialogue or facial expressions. It becomes a sort of anti-hero, a character who acts on its own desires and motives without regard for the other characters around it.

The rest of the cast is also memorable, with standout performances from Stephen Spinella as a skeptical sheriff and Roxane Mesquida as a tourist drawn into the strange events. The film also features a number of self-aware moments that poke fun at typical horror movie tropes and exaggerate the absurdity of the plot.

Overall, "Rubber" is a fascinating and unique movie that defies categorization. Its blend of horror, comedy, and surrealism might not be for everyone, but for those willing to take the plunge, it offers a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience.

Rubber is a 2010 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 22 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 59.
