Enjoyable if you are a fan--otherwise, perhaps this isn't your best introduction to the man.
3 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For fans of his work, this film about Bill Plympton's work is a definite must-see. It celebrates his work and gives you some insights into the man's formative years (though nothing about his life today). However, for folks who are NOT familiar with it, perhaps it isn't the best introduction. Part of it is because you only get small snippets of his films and part of this because the sexual drawings might scare you (though if you saw them in their entirety, most are pretty innocent). I'd watch a few of his films first, such as "Guard Dog", "Guide Dog" or "One of Those Days". And, part of it might be because without knowing Plympton's sense of humor, they may not realize that many of the interviews are fake! For instance, there are some funny ones with Ed Begley Junior and Terry Gilliam in which they say NOTHING nice about the man! There's also a funny bit with a bald bearded guy who HATES Plympton's work--and it's all a put on.

Well worth seeing and I like the film's unusual style. Clever and unique--just like Plympton! And, probably NOT a film for the kids!
