4.0 out of 5 stars Freaky! 10 Aug 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I originally saw this on the web and thought it was freaky but cool, so when I found u could get it on dvd with a book I couldnt resist!. Book is v freaky but the dvd was a bit disapointing, it was not in widescreen and only 2 channel audio which was not dolby digital, which is a shame as in full surround and widescreen it would hev been even freakier. A making off would have been interesting as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rubber Johnny - Chris Cunningham 6 Dec 2008
An amazing thing... A "making of" would have been a nice addition, but I suspect that Mr. Cunningham doesn't like to give his secrets away... A very original piece...

4.0 out of 5 stars dark 21 Jun 2005
By A Customer
I bought this purely for the DVD, which is a 7-minute music video for the Aphex Twin track, very dark and humorous, with a similar feel to the Japanese mental asylum video Chris did for the Squarepusher track 'Come on my Selector'. The accompanying book has gruesome, almost medical pictures of deformities that would appeal to fans of but which I found somewhat stomach-turning. Not for those of a nervous disposition.

4.0 out of 5 stars more messed up imagery to aphex beats 19 July 2005
uh, well to be honest im not sure what to say about chris cunningham's latest offering. its been int the pipelane for a while now.. and i have been really looking forward to seeing this. so, i'm clutching the lovely hardback book like dvd packaging.. complete with a lovely 40 odd pages of quite frankly incredibly disturbing yet somehow horrifically funny imagary of the aformentioned genleman's genitals, and at first i couldnt wait to watch this... thing...
so in i pop the dvd, and im greeted with 6 minutes [yes kids 6 whole minutes] of aphex twin beats and.. not quite so disturbing imagery that i had imagined/hoped...and then it ends. and, quite frankly its made me feel slightly miffed... are warp taking the piss?
thinking about it, they probably are, and damn i applaud them for that. okay, 6 minutes and 42 pages of pictures isnt much for your 15 quid, but it doesnt matter i guess. cunningham's warped mind has come up with something completly surreal and scary and funny all at the same time... about halfway through when johnny's head smashes into the camera and, well, cracks open is both horrificly shocking and pretty funny[!] but the thing that gets me about this release is that... it just feels like a music video... and nothing more. which, for something that has been in the works for probably 3 or more years, is kinda a bit of a let down. okay the work that cunningham has put into this is immense... spending whole days one 1 frame just to get it perfect is fantastic. but its just somehow a let down. i dont think i can describe why... its good and bad at the same time.
i think the biggest killer is that the imagery in the book is so good, i espected the short to be in the same style. which in a way it is... but the film doesnt show the messed up body creations... just a teenager in a wheelchair....
