Seriously, there are TWO films by Morgan Miller, the creator of last year’s Prometheus Shrugged, and that’s two too many. (If the Weekly gave out 0 stars, those would deserve it.)

Just missing the mark, though still enjoyable, are Roadkill Redemption (2 stars), Sidewalk (2 stars), Spy Fox (2 stars), and Tome of the Unknown (2 stars), which all lead to the longest and most serious piece, Crime: The Animated Series (3 stars), an illustrated documentary featuring six voice-over interviews with real people affected by crime. Its disjointed feel is offset by its originality and strong subject matter, and, regrettably, that’s more than can be said for many other shorts in this program, which, by the way, are intended for adults only.

Judged as a whole, the program isn’t bad, and the order of the films seems to make sense (though we could have done with fewer, but slightly longer, selections). But evaluated individually, there’s just not quite enough magic. – CM
