Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Jimi Hendrix Marionette

I would be very curious to see examples of marionette work that you 
consider top shelf. My background is in shadow puppetry, and as a fan 
of that particular genre, I can point to guys like Mantep Soedarsono 
and Mas Purbo (who is visiting the USA in June) as really the "guys to 
beat" (quoting an earlier thread). I hope to put up some video on 
youtube to illustrate my opinion. Are there any websites, commercial 
films, Netflix dvds that showcase great marionette work? Do tell.
