Audience Reviews for The King and the Mockingbird

  • Dec 13, 2014
    Did you know that one of the more tedious duties of being a king is having your portrait painted over and over again? That is no less true for King Charles XVI of Tachycardia. But it is even worse for him when his portrait takes over his life, and then obsesses over a shepherdess from a painting who is in love with a chimney sweep. Luckily for them, a mockingbird is able to save them from the king, the bird being a veteran of several skirmishes, both verbal and violent, with the real king. "The King and the Mockingbird" is an entertaining old-fashioned animated film that is equal parts surreal and political. In other words, it clears up the mystery of why the king's city is so underpopulated while ending on a very final Marxist note. So, while the movie specializes in some very memorable imagery, at other times, the movie's primitive level of animation makes this seem like a lost extended episode of "Heckle and Jeckle." And yes that's what I get for settling for the dubbed version.
