Very surreal and strange...but funny.
3 December 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Bill Plympton film is quite different from most. While it has some of the traditional colored pencil animation you may be used to seeing, the story itself is a strange stream of consciousness piece that is very surreal and odd...yet compelling at the same time. It is NOT laugh out loud funny like some of his films, but is still well worth seeing.

It begins with a guy pulling on a nose hair. It did NOT go where I thought it would but instead the hair became an ever-changing device on which the leading character moved and interacted. It's very hard to explain and you really just have to see it to understand and appreciate it.

Why, then, did I give it a 7? Well, while fun, it lacked the insane humor I love in other Plympton shorts and at times the artwork was rather rudimentary and crudely drawn. Still, it is well worth seeing--particularly to weird folks like myself who love this man's work.
