Reel Talk Episode 28: Batman’s Bum-Chin

Brought up this short film at some point during recording. Not sure if the mention made it in, but I wanted to highlight it regardless because I adore how expressive the deforming quality of the animation is. Just as in my favourite short of the Animatrix (which we also mentioned) ‘World Record’, the warping and twisting of the human form communicates torment in a manner that makes it harsh and visceral, whether it’s the physical strain of Dan Davis’ running, or the psychological agony contained within this family. As their bodies contort, expand and contract, their pain pours off the screen, immediate and harrowing.

TONE-SHIFT.

So this week we start with discussions of sex-restaurants and end on a review of a Kurt Russell film and somehow these things are not related. Craziness. Otherwise, we criticise Frank for being too normal, fall in love with Johnny Mnemonic, dismiss David S. Goyer, and take bleeding ages to get to the point about Rammstein. Truly, we have ourselves a goddamn show.
