Hasher's Delirium, The (1910)

*** (out of 4)

aka Songe d'un garçon de café, Le

Animated film from France has a man sitting in a circle where he sees various visions of "bad things" like alcohol and absinthe. Soon after the words are spelled out they turn into demon faces. I'm going to guess this minute short was original meant as some sort of anti-drug ad but it remains pretty fun for what it is. The animation looks quite good for its time and it also quite funny. The various demon heads were nicely drawn and I'm sure fans of avant-garde would find this entertaining.
