Sufferin’ Cats!

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jun 29, 2015

Jerry’s dodging two cats now, and they both deserve their comeuppance.  So dual duplicity is justified, morally/existentially speaking. But Sufferin’ Cats isn’t a philosophical treatise, so the results are less Red Harvest/Yojimbo than just not quite making sense. That’s the whole, but even when the cartoon doesn’t fully come off, T & J always deliver something. Consider for instance the whole axe bit, which is quite amazingly violent, and wonderfully inappropriate.
