Unless you don't like cats, you will most likely find this short film truly adorable, sentimental, and weirdly hypnotic. In fact, this is an experience that is just as mysterious and unexplained as cats themselves. It's only 85 seconds (including credits), and I found myself watching it over, and over, and over again indeed...
A life of a cat in a minute. Wonderful. I feel like nothing can be added to this, and nothing can be removed from it. Shows the role of people in cat's life: even if you do not want them to wake you up, they will — from inside your dream.
When compared to Rosenblatt's other works in this retrospective, this one is certainly more accessible and thematically easy, but I unfortunately think that's more of a fault. The piece fails to truly challenge the viewer, which should always be a major goal of experimental narrative. This one just seems shallow by comparison.
Ahahaha well at least this one has a clumsy bit of self-irony – I hope. The real mistery here is how people seem to be actually digging it – and far more interesting, how could this childish crap be allowed to take so much space in Mubi's programming.
This is like a small version of Inception with a cat in the lead role instead of DiCaprio and no, I'm not joking. Take a look if you don't trust me, go on... It only takes a minute (like, literally). The only things missing here are the bombastic sequences and Marion Cotillard, get rid of those and you come pretty much to this. Still good, no?
