A Mind-f*ck
22 June 2005 | by (Hants, England) – See all my reviews

Rubber Johhny is the latest effort from British film maker, Chris Cunningham. Cunningham has extensively worked with electro music legends, Aphex Twin, together they have created some of the most disturbing music videos ever, including 'Come to Daddy'.

Rubber Johnny is a disturbing trip into the mind of a isolated, disfigured misfit who is locked in a basement. His only company is a dog.

Using rapid editing and distorted camera work, Cunningham has created a visceral nightmare which manages to shock during it's six minute running time. Cunningham obviously has a lot of confidence when it comes to combining music with vision, and this is Rubber Johhny's genius. The film will undoubtedly leave a sick taste in your mouth, but the running time is disappointing. I was left wanting a lot more.

Please give Chris Cunningham a big budget so he can create a 90 minute nightmare.
