Working with a soft pencil line, muted colors, and no dialogue, cult animator Bill Plympton (Hair High) tells the story of a selfish jerk who inexplicably sprouts wings and learns to fly. (Apparently he's one of God's chosen, though his first act upon taking flight is to moon people on a passing airliner.) Plympton's grotesque characters and surreal metamorphoses are always entertaining, but this feature is so casually plotted that all the imagination in the world can't keep it afloat; in the end it seems less a story than a loose collection of slapstick reveries.
