(there’s a reason, actually)
But that won’t be a problem here – Lumalin movies are very very peculiar comedies, filled with dreamlike oddities and rampant intellectualized angst. After all, what’s more amusing than wide-eyed puppets adrift in acidic waves of existential confusion and justified bitterness? Don’t think about that sentence too closely – just wade right in and stare (perhaps start with Summer of the Chew Toy Soul, or Jesus Hates You Now). You’ll find quite a few puppets – that’s mostly because each movie takes about a year to do, so using puppets in the lead roles cures a lot of continuity problems (and asking actors to donate their services for a year is a dicey business, I always feel a bit sheepish about it). There’s a Tip Jar here and there, but don’t worry about that now – just settle back, perhaps sip/ingest your favorite relaxer (highly recommended), turn out the lights, use headphones or good speakers (if you can)….
And if you like what you find, be sure to sign onto the Email List, and you’ll get a heads-up when the next movie releases. You can also subscribe to this YouTube channel, where the trailers always appear first. And, last but not least, there’s Lumalin on Facebook and Twitter. Cheers, Tristan
