An acid-laced bubblegum pop fantasy, in all the best ways. Fuck the real world
Did I know that I needed a dystopian science fiction in claymation crafted on-and-off over 30 years by one of the top visual effects artists ever? No. Do I now think this is the only type of movie that should be allowed to be made? Yes.
Mad God might be the grossest, weirdest movie I have ever seen, but it’s truly the work of a visionary lunatic. It’s the hallucinatory fever dream of David Lynch and Wes Anderson. It’s the 21st-century version of a Hieronymous Bosch painting—completely out of step with nearly all of its contemporaries, meticulously detailed, horrifically brutal, and a fucking masterpiece.
