A mischievious man plays an assortment of extreme practical jokes on unsuspecting victims – like replacing one man’s razor with a chainsaw.
A late-’90s animated short from American indie animator Bill Plympton, Surprise Cinema introduces a series of impossible situations and lets us watch them play out. Always irreverent, playful, witty, and off-the-cuff, this is exactly the kind of skilled silliness we expect from Plympton.
