An Animated Tour-de-Force
27 March 2000 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This is a real gem of a cartoon that doesn't deserve the obscurity under which it seems to have fallen. Nominally, it's supposed to be a silent animated Western melodrama. However, the real premise is that the film is a very old, very battered print that's full of scratches, breaks, bad splices, etc., which keep interfering with the hero, heroine, and villain in wildly surreal ways. The gags are excellent and there's something vaguely metaphysical in the way the physical medium of the film affects the story. Definitely one of my all-time favorites...
