This isn’t going to be a proper review because I really don’t have much to say about Xavier Renegade Angel. But I do feel that I would be remiss in my duties if I didn’t mention this bizarre little gem that Tom Lando forwarded to me. Xavier Renegade Angel is…uh…well, it’s about Xavier, a faun-like creature with a beak, a snake for an arm and six nipples, who wanders the land in search of spiritual enlightenment, spouting gibberish philosophy everywhere he goes. It is also one of the most surreal things I have ever seen.
First off, it’s done in a blocky, early-CGI style, and the fact that it was made in 2007 tells me that this weird style is very intentional. Secondly, it makes no sense whatsoever. Like, I recognize that the language being spoken is English, and that the sentences are constructed properly, but the dialogue just goes all over the place. There is no doubt in my mind that this show was made by people on drugs for people on drugs.
Each episode of Xavier Renegade Angel is only ten minutes long, but even that feels like forever when you can’t understand what the hell is happening on screen. I can’t really recommend Xavier Renegade Angel as anything more than a strange little oddity that people who love the surreal might enjoy. But that’s it.
