    STOP MOTION ANIMATOR REACTS TO MAD GOD

    So I guess this is Phil Tippett’s Synecdoche New York Project. After all, he’s been sculpting, animating, storyboarding, crying, his hairline receding each year, and experimenting with this film for 30 motherfucking years!!!Β That’s someone’s lifetime right there! And all of that is condensed to an hour and 35 minute long stop-motion animation film.Β 

    With that in mind, it’s hard to even give this film a negative review. As a stop-motion animator myself, there’s…

    Its honestly kind of depressing…

    So I saw a guy wearing a shirt with a print of this film at a bar sitting next to me and naturally, I had to cover my drink. Was he going for β€œedgy alt boy”? Cause like, just wear Sonic Youth or something if you wanna pull a Tom from 500 days of Summer.Β 

    I mean the first 10 mins of this film alone shocks you with a montage of dead women. From a Black Dahlia crime scene to…
