A quirky classic
3 December 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

You'd never guess that an experiment in minimalism like this could be so entertaining and laugh-out-loud funny.

Shinobu Yaguchi and his associate Takuji Suzuki have assembled a feast of short films united by a single theme: they're all one with no camera movement, in one take from a super-8 video cam. (These were chosen from a pool of films, which were being filmed even after the release of One Piece!) When this played at the San Francisco Film Festival, many claimed it was the best film of the bunch; it was certainly the most daring. "Cat's Meow" remains my favorite: Somehow, the consciousness of his pet cat finds its way into the body of his girlfriend, but the cat can't quite stop being a cat in the meantime.

The sketches are often comic, but sometimes scary and just plain weird. One Piece! is largely critic-proof, and nothing like it has been done before, or as well.
