News & Interviews for Cheatin'
Critic Reviews for Cheatin'
The story is stuffed with exaggeration, elongation, elaboration, but it's all in the service of making a commonplace circumstance - love - look like it feels when it happens to you, i.e. the very opposite of commonplace.
Plympton will be cheated if "Cheatin'" doesn't at least get nominated for a best animated feature Oscar.
The whole range of human emotion - love, lust, anger, jealousy, despair, grief - is felt through Plympton's animation. It's just a shame that his boundless creativity doesn't extend to the narrative.
The film is extremely rich in visual inventiveness and depth of feeling -- with numerous sequences that could almost pass muster as individual shorts.
Bill Plympton's latest feature-length animation, about a loving couple riven by infidelity, contains some of his loveliest fantasy sequences, though the gap between his visual and storytelling skills persists.
