Other films take a little work. Take "The Usual Suspects"--great cast, plot line with lots of twists, and an awesome ending which, at the time, was brilliant... It's a little too well known to shock anyone these days. Or the best example of a complicated film, at least in recent years, is "Inception". One of my favorite films ever, to talk you through that would be a good hours discussion... And even then, you'd have a ton of questions.

"Rubber" is one of the most bizarre movies I've ever seen in my life. Without explanation, a tire, on it's own, stands up in the desert and starts rolling around. There is even a learning curve, as it, or he, figures out what is and is not possible.
And he kills people. Not by rolling over them, but by telekinesis. Like, brainwaves. And I say "he" and not "it" because the tire starts stalking this chick, even trying to spy on her in the shower. In fact, the tire has a name--"Robert". Its never called Robert in the movie, but the trailer specifies. I'm not kidding.
And if that's not weird enough, there is this sort-of subplot where there is this group of people are watching him from afar, only the people who have set up the viewing apparently want the group dead because they poison the food except there is one old man in a wheelchair who refuses to eat and he ends up contributing to the efforts in stopping the rogue tire...

head explodes. Oh, stop complaining that I ruined it--you weren't going
to see it.
However, I can't tell you to go watch this film... Not because it's gratuitous or bad or anything, it's just... Odd. I feel like out if every ten people, perhaps 2 will like this movie.
So, bottom line--this is one of the strangest, and even pointless, films I've ever seen, so if you want to see something you've never seen before, then "Rubber" is right up your alley. Just tread lightly.
