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).

Well worth seeing....alone!
9 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Sex and Violence" is one of Bill Plympton's earlier film shorts. Because of this, it's not surprising that the artwork is a bit rougher than his later work. Still, the film is quite funny. However, despite the title, this film is not necessarily about sex and/or violence. Instead, it consists of LOTS of different very short films all strung together. Some ARE pretty dirty and feature naked folks and sex acts--so it's NOT a film you show your mother or your children or Father McGinley. And, likewise, some of the shorts are very bloody and nasty--so, again, don't show this to anyone whose opinion you value. BUT, on the other hand, it IS a very funny film. Plus, even when some of the shorts fall flat, they come so quickly that another one is bound to make you laugh only seconds later. Very funny and, not surprisingly, rather offensive.

I should note that a few years ago, I met Bill Plympton and bought some DVDs from him at a convention. When I asked about buying "Bill's Dirty Shorts" (of which "Sex and Violence" is a part of) he STRONGLY recommended I not because I told him my 16 year-old loved his work. So, instead I got a few other DVDs and, inexplicably, he seemed so normal and nice--not the sort to make a raunchy (but hilarious) film collection like this one!
