Eric’s Review: Agatha (2022 Another Hole in the Head Film Festival)

Eric’s Review: Agatha (2022 Another Hole in the Head Film Festival)

★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

Agatha resides at the intersection of an experimental art piece and a horror movie. Knowing that, you know how to proceed with this film. Agatha is visually stunning but ultimately difficult to process at times. It is mesmerizing and dreamy and entirely devoid of dialogue, so your attention span will be tested. Ultimately if you like visually poetic and painterly films, this will be your bag.

Eric’s Review: Mad God (2022)

Eric’s Review: Mad God (2022)

★★★★ out of ★★★★★

The living master of stop-motion animation, Phil Tippett has finished his 35-year-old passion project, Mad God. It is a technical and visual triumph, an astounding achievement of effort, care, and craftsmanship. Notably, Mad God is also full of yucky puppets. It is also devoid of a clear narrative story. It resembles the visions of Hell by Hieronymous Bosch put into animated stop motion.

Simply put: Mad God is surreal, profane, disturbing, confusing… and FREAKY.
