PolarisDiB's rating of the film Wisdom Teeth

The first short that could be considered 'generic Hertzfeldt'. It contains his fond surrealism, playfulness of absurd dialog and sound techniques meta-referencing the babel of dollar store subtitling, and repetition humor as normalization of the bizarre, but nevertheless is as simple and basic as all those techniques get without that one little "WTF?!" factor he's usually better at. --PolarisDiB
