At first, it sucks...but bear with it...it gets much better
This is a decent experimental animation posing as a self-important pseudo-intellectual pile of claptrap. In other words, when you first watch it, you think all you are seeing is an animator trying to impress you with how "deep" and intellectual they are. STICK WITH IT--the animation actually makes fun of these sort of people. You realize this when the super-bizarre main characters begin dialoging with the animator and telling him he's full of it!! This is very clever, however you have to be willing to keep watching the film to get to this and the internal dialog within the animator (who becomes the main character midway through the film). On top of this, the animations score about a 13 on a weirdness scale that runs from 1 to 10! Because it was so different, the Academy nominated it for an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film. It's worth a look--just hold on tight and force yourself to keep watching!
