Long story short: I absolutely loved it! Its excessive sex and violence are portrayed in a surreal and manner that draws you in. The humor is very off beat and crude, yet witty (similar to a Bukowski novel). One of the best aspects of the film is the goofy, but well written songs, with lyrics like "Would you still love me if I followed the fad, dressed like a shad, and blew your dad?," that reflect the film's tone. Another brilliant aspect of the film is the use of the greed towards "the lobe", to gain ultimate power, which is so reflective of the present day's developed nations.
As much as I loved the film, I would have to make a warning: This film is very extreme in its sex and violence, and over all is not intended to please the general movie going public. I would suggest this mainly to fans of Charles Bukowski and John Waters.
Plympton is a true auteur. He designs everything himself, collaborating with as few people as possible. He has a small team of colourists, with all the animation either done or overseen closely himself. The result is always surprising, eclectic and surreal. Creating something lacking from ALL the visual art's these days which is a sense of its own logic. `Where Tears Come From' is a perfect example. We all know it's not true, but which is more fun to believe? Does your average man on the street ever REALLY need to know what causes a tear? So why is it important for Bill to let us in on the facts when the version here is so much more fun.
I was first introduced to Plympton via the adapted version of one of his shorts or Plymptoons as they are dubbed. Used to advertise Nik-Nak's- a British snack. I loved it but thought it was a one off. Then one night I was trying to sleep with the TV on, and The Tune was being screened as part of Animation week on Channel 4, it woke me up, and I stayed up to watch it. Surprised to find that the original version of the Nik-Nak advert was part of The Tune, as well as a short in it's own right.
A lot of criticism towards Plympton is aimed at the fact that his storylines are thin and pointless and badly executed, but this is in itself a pointless criticism as something important has been missed. This ain't Hollywood. Linear narrative can sit perfectly well as second to invention and imagination.Read more ›
