Double King

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.

“Wild Bill” Shakespeare knew what was up, and animator Felix Colgrave pays homage to his words with this daffy, darkly-humorous film about a madman intent on collecting all the head-toppers in the land.

Our unnamed protagonist, eyeballs bugging out in greed, slides across the countryside, dispatching any and all rivals in his lust for power.

Nary a word is uttered in the 10-minute running time, but the visuals more than carry the day.

A chop-chop here, a chop-chop there, everywhere a chop-chop, as the bodies hit the floor in grand style.
