I watched this earlier this evening with my Brother, if anyone could appreciate it’s quirkiness it would be him. First time seeing this, I’d seen a trailer for it and it seemed funny and weirdly intriguing, it’s was more than I was expecting. It’s more than just a killer tyre on the loose. A parody of sorts, we all get moments when we watch films and see something odd and wonder Why? Well this uses humor to poke fun at just that, there's randomness popping up everywhere. I would definitely recommend it, but I’d put money on very few people enjoying this, it wont be for everyone.

Oh yeah and if you’re a fan of BTVS (Buffy), look out for Deputy Mayor Allan Finch (Jack Plotnick). True Blood fans might also notice James Parks who played the Vampire draining drug dealer. Watching it, I said to my Brother that one of the Deputy Police Officers looked familiar, he just scoffed, that everyone looks familiar to me… though this time I was right, I just couldn’t put my finger on what on earth I’d seen him in.  

It is a French Film, set in California, with an American/French English speaking Cast. Directed and written by Quentin Dupieux.
