Storyline

In eight minutes, animator Bill Plympton gives us 24 vignettes: seven are clearly about sex, 10 about violence, and seven others deal with human frailties, particularly the body as it ages. There are three stories of persons with confused priorities (including a guy tying his shoe while parachuting); the world's first phone sex; and a clever, if dangerous, way to find a lost key. Except for the titles of each sketch and a couple of jokes that turn on noise, these are visual trips into the psyche of men, women, God, animals, and Time (the enemy of us all).

Sex and Violence (1997)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Hilarious short running eight-minutes that shows us twenty-four vignettes, all dealing with sex and violence. The sex aspect includes scenes of the first phone sex, a man who flosses during sex and other outrageous items that I can't mention here. The violence deals with a man who forgets his key so he hangs himself so that his life will flash before his eyes, another gag of a sky-diver tying his shoe instead of opening his parachute and a roller blader who gets too much blade. If you're familiar with the work of Plympton then you know to expect violence and that's what you get plenty of here. Most of the death scenes are extremely over the top but they're incredibly funny as well. The sex and nudity is very high here as well, so it goes without saying that these shorts aren't meant for kids. The adult humor is never vulgar but instead it's just very funny stuff meant for adults. Well worth seeing (as are many of the director's other shorts).
