On one level, I can understand why the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated this animated short for the Oscar. It certainly was creative and interesting. Before this film, you certainly didn't see claymation like this!! But, unfortunately, it's also very painful to watch and is like an assault on your eyes. Imagine giving clay to an immensely gifted person and tell them to make a cartoon...then give them about 30 doses of speed or make them drink the equivalent of 900 cups of coffee and see what they will produce--this is THE GREAT COGNITO.
Sure, I can admire the technical aspects of all this but it was just too frenetic and loud--making me wanting it all to end and end very, very quickly!!! If you have the patience, perhaps you'd like this short, but as for me it just gave me a migraine. Thank goodness Will Vinton at least slowed down those annoying dancing raisins!!
