You probably never gave it a momentâ€™s thought. But all great films, without exception, contain an important element of â€˜no reason.â€™ You know why? Because life itself is made up of tons of â€˜no reason.â€™
As a car slowly drives toward the camera, it knocks over a dozen chairs placed in its path before it comes to a halt. Lieutenant Chad (played by Stephen Spinella) steps out of the trunk, approaches the audience, and in the very first scene he reveals the punchline and purpose of the film youâ€™re about to watch. This, he tells us, is an â€œode to â€˜no reason.â€™â€ This weekendâ€™s film recommendation is Quentin Dupieuxâ€™s Rubber (2010).
