Rubber: The Tire that Kills

Perhaps the tire is lonely...
Why do certain things happen in movies; no reason.  Rubber tells us this in an opening monologue and then spends ninety minutes demonstrating this with a movie in which events happen for no reason.

A rubber tire comes to life, discovers that it has telekinesis, then uses that power to kill people.  This happens for no reason

A chorus of people are watching and commenting on the actions of the murderous tire like guests at a play.  Why are they there?  No reason.

The tire is stalking a beautiful woman at a local motel for no reason.

Getting past these ridiculous things that happen for no reason is difficult.  However, Rubber is upfront about it.  You can't say that about a lot of movies nowadays.
