We continue our previous masters series with a weekly sampler of directors whose work to see, selecting a title each week we feel exemplifies their work that may expand beyond the scope of the go-to title.
Meet The Feebles
Dir. Peter Jackson, 1987
97 min, English
Heidi, the star of the "Meet The Feebles Variety Hour" discovers her lover Bletch, The Walrus, is cheating on her, and with all the world waiting for the show the assorted co-stars must contend with their own problems. These include drug addiction, extortion, robbery, disease, Drug dealing, and even murder. Shot in the style of the Muppets, this is absolutely not a children's movie. Like much of Jackson's earlier work, the comedy in this film relies on the grotesquerie presented and outright poor taste it's done in as an outright assault on good taste.
