The puns about this film may be getting tiresome, but
if you can spare a couple of hours you might find that Quentin Dupieux's Rubber
(2010) will jack up some excitement. You might say its tale of a mute,
telepathic, murderous automobile tire treads familiar ground, recalling John
Carpenter's Christine and Steven Spielberg's Duel.
