Idiots & Angels - 1/26/13

Every week, the members of the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin & Travis) gather in a subterranean screening room. Each week, a different member of the group chooses a movie to watch, and afterwards the others debate the movie's merit for the entertainment of you, the listener.

This week, Travis chooses Idiots & Angels (2008), a film from animator Bill Plympton, known for his distinctive art style and early-year MTV interstitials.  In Idiots & Angels, a curmudgeonly fellow awakens one day to find he's grown a pair of wings which prevent him from indulging himself in bad deeds.  Plympton, an iconoclastic animator, undertakes the entire process of animating a feature film himself.  Plus, find out how the Chexist Chainsaw Massacre ties in, and listen as we attempt to trace the lineage of adult animation, from Ralph Bakshi all the way through Adult Swim!
