Very impressive
27 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I live in San Diego and we have a cable access channel that broadcasts different artistic clips of all kinds, and they just broadcasted this amazing short. It is an animation piece, about as far as I can tell, about a man in hell, or if not hell, just wallowing in some serious anguish. Surprisingly surreal and nightmarish imagery, blended with an effective use of classical music also make this very creepy flick one to look out for.
