Here’s a smattering of reviews that are up way too late for you to take advantage of, but nonetheless you should know about (for better or for worse). All these films were screened at the most excellent so far 2011 Seattle International Film Festival. Vallanzasca -...

Is Tropical blends old school cartoon and video game with real life in this video where boys will be boys. The headshots are okay because it's animated violence, kids, and fake chemistry sets with briefcases full of money and boxes labeled with "drogue" are just...

To go along with Screaming Females' community-based concept, DoodleDrag is this DIY animated film for "Wild."

Sun Wu-Kong is a character in Chinese lore that I grew up with, so it is of particular interest to me that Alexis Gideon will be reinventing it in rock opera form. This will be showing at Disjecta at 8:00pm on September 3rd. Check out this...
