Idiots and Angels Reviews

December 19, 2010
...the punk rock of animated features: handmade, profane, challenging to the status quo, and occasionally ugly, yet groundbreaking.
October 11, 2010
A delightful yarn revolving around an age-old showdown between good and evil.

The dystopia conjured by Idiots and Angels, Mr. Plympton's sixth and best animated feature, suggests Toulouse-Lautrec by way of Charles Bukowski.

Now in his early sixties, Plympton has made his most accomplished feature...his characters resemble images in motion rather than full-on animations, as if a Looney Tunes cartoon made love to a Ralph Steadman sketch.

In some respects, Idiots and Angels shows legendary independent animator Bill Plympton at the top of his game.

A dystopian commentary on humankind.

Even without a word of dialogue, Plympton's dark fable about the almost unnatural redemption of a lost soul content in its damnation is easily understood, and neatly told.

You're not going to come out of the movie a [Plympton] fan if you don't go in as one.

I like to think Plympton would take it as a compliment if I said he sees human beings as little more than a debased sum of bodily functions.
May 26, 2008
Although this is, in part, a darkly comic exploration of man's inhumanity to man, there is a current of optimism, flowing like the artwork, beneath the story.

Good battles evil as a gun-running, booze-swilling, cigarette-puffing badass is dragged, kicking and screaming, toward salvation in Bill Plympton's slyly sardonic black comedy, his best animated feature to date.
May 5, 2008
Beautifully creepy... Less concerned with gags than nimble storytelling and wide-screen aesthetics (every brooding corner of the frame is blotted in monochromatic noir hues), Plympton mines elegance from the utterly gonzo.
