Movie Review by Lona
February 14th, 2007

I'm a Republican

Crispin Glover is Rubin Farr, a long haired, cat loving recluse who spends his days listening to Mahler and squeaking his dead cats mouse. He lives in a motel room in a motel that his mother runs and owns.

Rubin's mother is sick of Rubin having no friends and threatens to takes away his music and return it only when he bring homes a friend. Enter Ed. A hopeless failure with a massive anger problem currently active in an organization that he has no idea is a pyramid scheme.The two meet up and the chaos begins.

Rubin hijacks Ed's car to in order to find the perfect place to bury his dead cat Simon. Deciding finally to bury the cat in the desert, they make the trip only to have the car break down,and end up stranded. Simon finally rests in the cave of the echo people.

Meanwhile back in civilization the police are after Ed . Ed finds himself in a right mess, liable for Grand theft auto and kidnapping.As Ed says.... "it's going to get weird now, isn't it?".

The casting, the sets and costumes are flawless. If you love movies with offbeat characters and wacky storylines, Rubin and Ed will indulge you to the fullest. Whilst the comedy might not be favoured by all, the showdown scene where Rubin flings his shoe at Rula(Karen Black)will be guaranteed to give everyone a laugh.
