The star-system was pronounced dead by almost everyone, but as of the moment of writing everyone is talking about Liza Minnelli in Cabaret and she made the covers of Time and Newsweek simultaneously. Contrast the …

George the Hedgehog (Jez Jerzy) Cinequest Mar 10, 9:45

Submitted by on March 10, 2012 – 5:44 pmNo Comment

Based on Rafal Skazycki’s comic books. “Jez Jerzy,” a rutting little cartoon hedgehog, shows signs of emulating The Simpsons’ “Poochie” with his backward baseball hat and his skateboard. But this critter (a smiling, bristly scrotum on two legs) is apparently the idol of Polish youth. So a plot is hatched by a wall-eyed scientist to clone him. Object: the furthering of the agenda of a hog-faced congressman, as well as his two dupes, a pair of nationalist skinheads, Stefan and Zezek. The little Jer-Jerzy that’s Frankensteined up is foaming and flatulent, and more badly behaved than the original… The cartoon plays out in wavery computer animation of paper cutouts, as seen on some of the far reaches of the UHF dial on Saturday mornings.

But the rare Polish gift for caricature shines in this shite-life look at Warsaw, in the meaty, drunk faces of the rabble; the way a discarded condom flutters like a banner around the neck of a beer bottle stuck in the mud next to the Vistula, or the strangely soaring moment when a fleet of inflatable love dolls profane the Catholic skies over Poland’s capital. The sexual politics may be questionable, but both horrible sexes eventually get what’s coming to them. Featuring the only genuinely funny prison-bitch joke I’ve heard in a long time. Best seen after ten PM.
