what...... the actual good ever-loving FUCK.............
the animation style is??? ineffably good?? like. it's not the Best by any means but something about it is incredibly fluid and comforting.
this is crude and gross and funny and so WEIRD.
it's less than 10 minutes, you have no excuse: watch it here !!!
also did i watch this in bed, in my jimjams, with a box of chocolate milk & animal crackers? yes. i'm beyond Content right now
he just wants his crown let him have it
Surrealismo grotesco a propósito de la ambición desmedida y la lucha por el poder.
This is the weirdest/funniest short I have ever seen
Oops I watched it again.
My first experience with cult animator Felix Colgrave, a fellow who seems to be carving out quite a niche for himself. Nothing earthshattering -- a look at the existential absurdity of ambition and violence -- but there is something here that reminds me of George Plympton, whose animations I've always hated. Here, Colgrave improves on all the Plympton affectations I despise -- the vibrating squiggles, the cheap-ass colored pencil look, the random twisting of human body parts -- and creates an almost Sartrean allegory regarding the futility and transience of power. In other words, somebody's always waiting to bite your head off.
An undisputed classic of the youtube short film era that I regularly return to just to catch the odd scene here and there. Is definitely the best version of itself possible, with it's clever premise being played out to just the right length for it to never become tired. Balances an accessible cartoon style with a far more intricate psychedelic flourish perfectly, along with it's wonderfully odd medieval-infused narrative + aesthetic. Very clearly borne from Gilliam's early Python period but in the most interesting and freshest of ways.
Dune but good.
I was showing my English class a short film called Weekends, and someone recommended this to me. I could swear I had heard the title before, and several of my friends have watched it and rated it highly. It lived up to the expectations. Absolutely lovely animation. I love every about it. Simple, clean and imaginative. The story is cute and I love the Double King. He will do everything to get more crowns. Perhaps it is a metaphor for my never ending movie collecting. This is one to watch, definitely.
Visually stunning and hilarious. Showed it to my mom and sister and they loved it. It's only 9 minutes and on Youtube for free, give it a watch.
It's weird and I like it a lot.
The king dude reminded me of Gary from Spongebob. So in conclusion, I loved it
Seeing it without being tired I just appreciate how well it balances being surreal/grotesque/psychedelic with humor, canniness, and nonverbal character-building. Everything I come to animated shorts for!
Thank you for the rec/damn you for flattening this for me, stoner friend of friend from college
Sorry, I have a weird sense of humor
While I love this short, what's the deal with excluding Lasagna Cat Letterboxd? Anyways, Double King is a pretty incredible short that seems appropriate considering everything I've seen from Felix Colgrave which, surprisingly, isn't as much as I'd honestly hoped. Still, I'm somewhat digging into this film 3 years later. The animation is great but what is it saying? Does it matter? It's a silent film more or less about a greedy king who wishes to be a king beyond kings to the point of eradication, of course. But it's telling too. I mean, isn't this a good metaphor for how power corrupts absolutely? Greed perhaps? Thoughts thoughts but I mean who is to really say except for Colgrave himself?…
