This Is a Recorded Message

2.9
6.8/10 IMDB

This experimental animated short takes a critical look at consumerism in a material world. Thousands of cut-out ads are presented in increasingly fragmented, rapid succession. The film's disorienting and hectic pace seeks to interrogate the extent to which seductive advertising is a shockingly strong force in shaping our desires, needs, and lives in contemporary capitalism.

The Naked Ape

2.4
5.9/10 IMDB

Somewhat based on Desmond Morris's fascinating book of pop anthropology, this partially animated satirical docudrama produced by Playboy Magazine publisher Hugh Hefner, traces the evolution of human kind and offers insight into the reasons why we behave the way we do. Though often dealing with sexuality, nothing in the film is terribly offensive or graphic. A prime example of mainstream experimental film-making from the early 70's featuring a young and breathtakingly lovely Victoria Principal.

Starring: Johnny Crawford, Victoria Principal, Norm Grabowski, Robert Ito, John Hillerman, Dennis Olivieri, Brett Parker ..
Directed by: Donald Driver
Release date: 1973-08-01
