Mumblecore Subway Rats: The Animated Short

09.12.12 Andy Cush

In this charming, drolly funny animated short from filmmaker Phil Matrese, two NYC subway rats contemplate going to a party, munch on some questionable snacks, and play a little Deep Purple-inspired air guitar, all in a deadpan that wouldn’t be out of place in a Duplass brothers film. And then one of them dies. Subway Rats: they’re just like you and me!
