    The 2010 film Rubber

    is about nothing – according to the opening monologue. “No meaning,” says our pseudo-narrator to a group of people gathered in the desert with binoculars to watch a “movie.” Then proceeds a film about an old tire which springs to life and begins to telepathically explode peoples' heads. No meaning? It is an absurdist avant-garde film, and as such I found it rife with meaning (but that's kind what I do; I found deeper meanings in Uwe Boll's


    , declared Troma's “heavy metal musical”

    Mr. Bricks

    to be “high art,”

    and decided this weird thing called

    The Period

    was secretly a good film, so take of that what you will).

    Now: Quentin Dupieux (bizarro French DJ Mr. Oizo) has a new film, and it is called


    . The plot is simple at its surface: a man, Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) has lost his dog and wants it back – desperately. Things get weird as the obsession begins to affect his life. Strange things occur, things are not what they seem, and a bevy of unique personages are introduced into his life.

    The film is not to get a wide theatrical release, and in fact the literal last chance to see it in theaters in this country during its rounds is tomorrow, Saturday, as Baxter Avenue Theater will be screening it as part of the Midnights at the Baxter series. It's something you won't want to miss, something magical: the chance to see truly brilliant absurdist art on the big screen in a crowd setting.

    Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1250 Bardstown Road. Further theater information and advance ticket sales can be found at the Baxter Avenue Theater website.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
