Worth a Watch: Your Face

Published: Fri Oct 16 2020

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, hasn’t it? Yeah, sorry about that. We know you’re all clamouring for one of these bite-sized blog morsels every couple of weeks, and their absence must have been incredibly tough for you all.

Anyway, without further sarcasm, Your Face is a 1987 animated short from independent animation don dada Bill Plympton, and is the one of the most insane, odd, disturbing, downright hilarious things ever committed to celluloid (or… errr… paper, that matter). There’s no plot to speak of – just a tomato-faced man singing about his lover’s visage while his own morphs and transforms in a variety of mind-boggling ways.

It’s really good. Promise.
