Cheatin
First viewing - Aug. 14th
Possibly I've told this tale before, but whatever...back in the 90s I remember seeing Bill Plympton's "Plymptoons" on MTV when they ran some of his shorts, and I really dug his style. He's got a twisted sense of humor at times & his art is really enthralling. However I don't recall ever seeing his work anywhere else in the years that followed, up until the past year or so when his films have gradually found their way onto Netflix. I thought this was even better than Idiots & Angels, first off. That one eventually lost my attention but this one held it throughout. There's almost no dialogue, which means the visuals tell most of the story, propelled by music that's mostly in the background. By turns the film is funny, thoughtful, heartbreaking, and thought-provoking. It's especially cool to see animation clearly aimed at adults too. I don't know that it quite crossed the line into greatness, but I'd gladly watch this again. Currently streaming on Netflix

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Concert junkie. Music addict. Book devourer. Movie lover. Watcher of quality TV only. Willing to give new things a chance. Hater of advertisements & mediocrity. Giraffe/human hybrid. Doesn't fit into boxes well.

Aye, Green Room was sensational. On the same level as Blue Ruin. I clearly need to check out the director's other movie, Murder Party :)

I'll try to at least watch 1 film a day, so I'll regularly update the list!

Thanks for the vote and the comment!

I've heard "In glorious times" and while I do agree with you that it's probably their best album technically, I'm more attached to "Grand Opening and Closing". But I often change which one is my favorite, sometimes it's even "Of Natural History", which was the first one I heard from them.

Haven't heard that Paper Chase album yet, so I'll check it out. :D
