The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle Directed by David Russo, 2009
“Off the wall yet completely intelligible, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle mines existential commentary from toilet humor.” The New York Times; Jeannette Catsoulis;
“Like Clerks reimagined by William S Burroughs” (New York Times), THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION OF LITTLE DIZZLE is the quirky, humorous and dark story of Dory (Marshall Allman, True Blood) and his motley crew of janitor pals (Tania Raymonde, Lost; Vince Vieluf and Tygh Runyan).
After he loses his high-paying computer programmer job, Dory lands a gig as a night janitor at a market research firm. To make some extra money, he agrees to be a test subject for a study run by the deceptively innocent Tracy (Natasha Lyonne, American Pie) involving deliciously addictive cookies that simulate “oven freshness.” However, the cookies leave Dory and his fellow male janitor subjects feeling a bit more than just odd. Hallucinations, intestinal distress and wild mood swings ensue leading to the wholly unexpected birth of a beautiful blue fish.
Wildly inventive with innovative animation, Little Dizzle is a lighthearted romp with a liberated vision.
