Lipsett in Portland

PIFF gets Spiffy

“This is definitely the most star-studded shorts program this year, with animation eminence Bill Plympton exploring a more vibrant palette in The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger. and Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) recruiting Chloe Sevigny for his first foray into narrative filmmaking, All the Flowers in Time. But it’s Lipsett Diaries that makes this omnibus essential. Theodore Ushev’s homage to the frantic film experiments of Arthur Lipsett, who committed suicide in 1986, braids painterly animation, fevered narration (delivered by wunderkind Xavier Dolan) and a clanging score by Canadian noise-niks Set Fire to Flames to capture a cracking mind’s flustered visions.”
