Bobby Yeah is like a Coen Brothers acid trip in which small compulsions spiral out of control, a Pandora’s box fashioned after a Russian doll where characters frantically try to undo their mistakes by ill-advisedly opening box after forbidden box, only managing to make things worse.

Something like wicked version of Czech stop-motion animation, eh?

I just went through Robert Morgan's filmography, and I found his entire output creative and appealingly grotesque, but there's a distinct lack of ideas-saturation, such that overall it seems like he's making weirdness "for the sake of it", which isn't discouraged, but also doesn't amount to much. At least in my case, since claymation rarely tends to be very effective for me insofar as the unsettling/"sick" aspect is concerned.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?


Well here he is skidded out onto the Zone like a planchette on a Ouija board, and what shows up inside the empty circle in his brain might string together into a message, might not, he'll just have to see.

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!
