Animatic Attack #7 – Jasmine Boobs

Animatic Attack

Fawndolyn Valentine, Justique Woolridge, and Nick Marino

Show Notes:

We discuss Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi’s French animated film adaptation of her two Persepolis graphic novels.

The movie tells the story of a little girl obsessed with her grandmother’s breasts an Iranian girl coming of age during a turbulent time in her country’s history. We have mixed feelings about it, appreciating the animated version of Satrapi’s art but struggling to enjoy the plot, themes, and characters as presented.

We also discuss the fifth episode of Welcome to the NHK, wherein Sato embarrasses himself when he unexpectedly reunites with his high school flame. The shame prompts Sato to take Misaki up on her offer to “save” him from being a hikikomori.

Next Episode:
We have the power with He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword!

    Was really excited to hear your talk about Persepolis and WOW, you savaged it! Haha! Really though, I think most of the points brought up are rather spot-on. Even if I’m sad that she lost your doubt-benefit so early on, but yeah, the film is horribly trimmed down.

    I wanna hear more about what you think about it, if you’d like to share. Justique and I have been ranting about it like crazy around the apartment for the past couple of days.

    Can we count Marji’s obsession with Gramma’s boobs as incest? I don’t think we mentioned anything incest in this episode and WE CAN’T BREAK OUR STRIDE!!!
