Still, if you're Quentin Dupieux, the French crackpot who made albums with titles like 'Analog Worms Attack' and 'Moustache (Half A Scissor)', you've got a reputation to live up to so you may as well direct a film with the kind of plot that came to you during a cheese-and-absinthe-fuelled dream you had one night.
Still, it does star an actor called Wings Hauser. So that's good.

BENEFIT OF TINY FRACTION OF READERSHIP
Just before Rubber "hits the shelves" on Monday, its only remaining cinema screening is at Brixton's Ritzy, where it's on this Friday night as part of their Midnight Movies / Culture Shock strand. There's a party beforehand and everything, which has the troubling dress code "Rubber wear or tourist attire". Personally I have doubts about the wisdom of wandering round Brixton on a Friday night dressed in rubber or as a tourist so I'll probs give it a miss.
