To call this "irreverent" would be an understatement!
9 January 2014 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting short film which was nominated for an Oscar. It would be impossible to discuss this without giving some details, so here there be spoilers:

The short is almost precisely three minutes in length (3:02 the copy I watched) so needless to say, it's a seriously condensed history. It starts with God creating the world, shows Adam and Eve and Moses, works in Greek mythos with the Trojan Horse, Leonardo da Vinci and Columbus make cameos and so on It says something about Homo sapiens that wars and destruction figure significantly throughout.

The ending of the short pretty much comes full circle, so to speak. It's cute and funny and well worth finding and watching. Recommended.
