A film 30 years in the making. Mad God is special effects master Phil Tippett's passion project, and that passion shows. It's a weird, bewildering film that wasn't made with any clear commercial goal in mind, but people who love dark, nightmarish fantasy will no doubt find lots to love. The structure of the plot is needlessly convoluted, the music isn't quite on point and the live-action parts are a bit of a downer, but the stop-motion work is beyond impressive and the outlandish, freaky designs are dead gorgeous. A unique project that deserves all the support it can get.
