What are people saying?

  • Georges Iroh's rating of the film Satan's Waitin'

    Obsession is self destructive. Every narrative writing course should dissect Looney Tunes shorts, as I feel like they are a master class in visual storytelling, and this one is no exception. Freleng's 'toons don't share Clampett's elasticity, Avery's arch writing style or Jones's exacting touch, but his enthusiasm for the thrill of the chase and linear movement shines here.
