Laugh/scream-out-loud funny, and mayhaps a little touching, to boot!
15 April 2006 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I've got to tell you the circumstances where I first saw this.

I went to an short animation fest in Taipei, Taiwan, with my eldest daughter. We walked into the screening room when Fast Film had been playing for about a minute; in other words, we missed the first minute or so.

My daughter and I were laughing, screaming, cheering, looking at each other in amazement. This thing is such a labor of love. I could easily add comments that fairly well mirror others here in the IMDb, but I'll just refer you to them. I found them to be good reads, and I concur; the artists involved tapped into something about early American film, and as such taps into the collective dream we call life. And to top it off, it takes its silliness seriously, and its seriousness zanily.

You can buy this film (+ electronic license) from an online dealer for US$3. I did, and I watch it once a month or so. Go to any reputable search engine and find it.
