Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This compilation film contains some of cartoonist Bill Plympton's best-known animated shorts. Fans love him for his surrealist takes on modern life and his inventive ways of distorting the human body. Titles found in this feature include his keen-edged anti-military film "Boomtown," the queasily instructive short "How to Kiss," "Push Comes to Shove," and even a couple of newer films such as "Nosehair." Some of the footage from Plympton's two live-action features Guns on the Clackamas and J. Lyle also appears.
