The crude multi-textured animations feel strangely intimate, and I love the idea of an "art gallery of anonymous memories." I was particularly moved by this line: "I do not have the mental or emotional capacity to deal with his loss; but sometimes I sit in a chair late at night and quietly feel very bad."
An explosion of sci-fi ideas, all done with the mixture of whipsmart imagination, despair, heart, and sardonic humor that Kurt Vonnegut and Philip K. Dick brought to the genre. Its worldview where technology keeps increasing while the human condition (of course) stays constant has been done before, but is done here beautifully. What lingers most is the idea of youth seeing the world but not grasping its implications.
This guy is really something...so much to ruminate over with such a low run time,very charming and thought provoking short coupled with dope animation.This may sound bizarre but i think he should do something with C.N. on Adult Swim,i think Don Hertzfeldt would get over well over there and it would give him exposer to a completely different audience,and at the same time give Adult Swim some much needed prestige.
