Creations of Chaos: The Pocket Man & Snack Attack

When Fathom Events and GKids announced that they were teaming up to host a Studio Ghibli Fest, I was thrilled. The fest would include six animated features from the Studio Ghibli collection. The films would appear on the big screen, one per month, for six months, starting in June. What I missed when reading up on Studio Ghibli Fest, was that the event would also include a mini animated shorts fest. GKids would select some of the best animated shorts from around the world to show after each Ghibli feature. You can imagine my excitement as I bounced to the last few notes of My Neighbor Totoro’s ending credits song, and then suddenly, a new piece of dazzling animation popped up on the screen, followed by another. In this edition of Creations of Chaos, we look at The Pocket Man and Snack Attack.

‘My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea’: Dash Shaw Lands Quirky Animated Debut

High school dramas are back with a vengeance. There’s the noir soap opera shenanigans of Archie, Betty and Veronica on Riverdale, and the sharply observed teen pathos of Thirteen Reasons Why. Both series paint a portrait of high school about fifty shades darker than the quaint distractions of a John Hughes movie. Out on the big screen in limited release this weekend is My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, joining the class of 2017 with a surrealistic romp fusing teen comedy and disaster movies to hilarious effect.
