My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea

(2016)

Animated disaster comedy written and directed by acclaimed cartoonist Dash Shaw (Cosplayers, New School), featuring a voice cast lead by Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts.... More

Dash (Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Watts) are preparing for another year at Tides High School muckraking on behalf of their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, edited by their friend Verti (Maya Rudolph). But just when a blossoming relationship between Assaf and Verti threatens to destroy the boys’ friendship, Dash learns of the administration’s cover-up that puts all the students in danger. As disaster erupts and the friends race to escape through the roof of the school, they are joined by a popular know-it-all (Lena Dunham) and a lunch lady (Susan Sarandon) who is much more than meets the eye, in this wild satirical send-up of disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster fare.Hide

The Press Reviews

  • A sweetly subversive dig at the constricting codes of teen hierarchies, the sheep-like mentality of youth and the failures of the education system. Full Review

  • Combining a disaster movie with a high school comedy while also animating it is a rather ambitious combination. What's even more incredible is just how well it all works. Full Review

  • The annoyance factor of "My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea" extends to the animation, which is remorselessly clever and original yet still oddly uninvolving; it's like being buried in a dump truck's worth of antic indie drollery. Full Review
