Part of No Joke: Absurd Comedy as Political Reality

Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater

With PFFR in person

Dir. Vernon Chatman, John Lee and Marco Bertoldo. 2007-2008, 84 mins. Digital projection. With Jim Tozzi, Vernon Chatman, John Lee and Alyson Levy. Xavier: Renegade Angel is a brain-scrambling indictment of liberal white culture in all of its abject forms. Each episode of Xavier follows an unapologetic onslaught of philosophical diatribes and pun-filled verbiage issuing from a goat-legged humanoid who wanders like an awkward shaman in a computer-generated desert. This beast-man continually unleashes his abusive presence on unassuming nowhere towns, usually causing a town-wide or civilization-wide catastrophe. Taken in full, the series arc is structured rather admirably after a Greek tragedy, but moment-to-moment the combination of PFFR’s writing, the visual effects and the hard-hitting themes serve to make Xavier a truly singular spectacle in the history of television.
