A short film out of Sundance, Meaning of Robots combines two of the most important elements of film: robots and sex. Here’s the plot description that would simply be too obvious if posted on April Fool’s Day:

The benevolent Mike Sullivan, age 65, has been shooting an epic stop-motion robot sex film in his apartment for the last 10 years. Obsessed with constructing the miniature robot porn stars, his apartment now overflows with thousands of them.

I don’t know what I just watched is brilliant or idiotic, but I know that this unholy combination of “Hoarders,” Isaac Asimov, and a pervert Santa Claus just made my brain implode.
