Monster Road Out On DVD

For those of you who didn’t get to see it in your local theatre: Monster Road, the award-winning Bruce Bickford documentary, is out on DVD. The film offers a fascinating look into the life and spirit of a true American excentric and his absolute dedication to the one thing he lives for: clay animation. Much like Zappa’s, Bickford’s work lives in a self-shaped universe where reality, logic and social convention are bent and skewed into something entirely unique. As far apart as both their worlds may be, it’s no coincidence that Zappa took a keen, perhaps even anthropological interest into Bickford, as documented in Baby Snakes and Dub Room Special. Though they are opposites in many ways, one trait brings them together: deviation from the norm.
Get the DVD — you won’t regret it. Long live deviation from the norm!
