Storyline

In an animated landscape of the Old West, a reflective man is the partner of what seems to be his spectral doppelgänger. As the man drinks, lies around, and waits for the good, then waits for anything, then fails, the doppelgänger takes up with a woman with long hair. She's playful and open, and he takes advantage of her trust. Can there be a healing and rebirth? What will bring it? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

It's like sex ed taught by a surrealist!
22 July 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of six films included in the collection "The World According to Shorts". For the most part, this is not a particularly good set of shorts, as I have seen many others with more memorable content than this rather disappointing DVD.

This is the only animated film in the set. It consists of black and gray drawings with bizarre characters from the American West in a battle of the sexes--as drawn by someone inspired by Picasso or possibly LSD. There is a plethora of sexual content and imagery in the film--like it was made by a subversive little kid who still isn't too sure about the anatomy of a naked lady! In fact, the film seems to be almost nothing but sexual images, genitalia and breasts--many of which aren't even connected to people. It's all pretty creepy and strange, though I assume that Georgia O'Keefe and Salvador Dali probably would have enjoyed it very much.

Overall, I'd say it is an interesting and highly original film that made almost no sense and made my brain hurt. Sadly, this might just be the best film in the collection because at least it held my attention!!
