An astoundingly edited high-concept short which deconstructs and reconstructs film through cuts and splices, transforming old images into new ones. But also an obnoxious hyper-active mess.
65/100 - Decent (2.5)
Fun, if film-schoolish, mix-and-match mash-up of cinematic tropes, deconstructed to their constituent elements, and re-animated as clumsy cut-outs of themselves to highlight the vulgar, if wonderful, puppetry they represent. The concept allows for amateurish realization, so, benefit of the doubt, there… Happily, it also calls for brevity! Somewhere between forgivable and well done. 2.5
You can't deny the editing skill and it's an inventive concept but I couldn't wait for it to end and it's only 14 minutes long! An utterly horrible viewing experience. Aesthetically I hated it on every level and the necessarily clichéd plot was beyond tiresome. Glad I skipped this when it filmed at a film festival where I could have seen it. I was intrigued by the idea but worried I might not like the result. Correct
Whilst I admire the work that must've gone into the making of this, i'm sorry to say that I thought it was a bit of bit a mess and the lack of a coherent story made it dull. I was pleased when it was finished; thankful that it was only a short film.
