Quite entertaining...
2 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This little minute movie is fun and quite interesting for its time. Although it is no where near as good, it is similar to "The Andalusian Dog" in that it does not mean much but does not have to because for its time it was a statement on its own. It is there because it can be and should be. It made me smile but I am glad it was not longer than it was. If it were not so short, it would be boring since it is lacking in any timeless elements, like attractive images for instance, for one's interest to latch onto. "Hasher's Delirium" is not brilliant but it is worth a look at least for its historical value and the fact that the animated character just looks funny with that stupid smile especially when something pops up that you would think would bring about a frown but does not.
