The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth Of All Time
Twenty-four short films with music by RADIOHEAD
The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time
(TMGLMOAT) is a Radiohead DVD,
which was released on December 1,
2004 and was directed and edited by Chris Bran who is one half of the Vapour Brothers.
The film features unheard songs with numerous live videos.
The film contains all four episodes of TMGLMOAT.
It also has animations and interviews with the band.
Some of the sections of TMGLMOAT were created by Chris Bran,
Stanley Donwood and Radiohead,
while others were directed by people who submitted videos to Radiohead and were selected for inclusion.
Each of the four episodes is introduced and closed by commentary from Chieftan Mews,
a digitally composited and likely fictional character thought to be either Nigel Godrich or Stanley Donwood.
Like Radiohead's last three albums,
the film has a certain experimental quality to it.
Several of the TMGLMOAT films were shown as interval entertainment at Jonny Greenwood's performances at the 2005 Ether Festival.
One memorable section of the DVD is the fictional band The Tripti Ensemble Crew,
a twisted cartoon-esque group of defaced dolls.
The booklet to the DVD has the title,"The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of All Time", printed on both sides of it, however with different artwork.
Some think it was intended for the DVD to have two different covers,
however the artwork pattern on the inside cover does not match the artwork in the clear spine.
