Santa: The Fascist Years
Slamdance Film Festival
Director: Bill Plympton
Brief caveat: Bill Plympton has always been one of my favorite animators. That being said, this short was fabulous. Matthew Modine narrates the action, in a classic newsreel voice, as Santa seeks to gain world domination through an army of toys. Chris Cringle is seen associating with the likes of Hitler and plotting a scheme to make everyday Christmas. The animation is classic Plympton and, therefore, very excellent.
