Interesting story, dragged down by the visuals
19 May 2003 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

The actual tale told in Six Of One is really quite an interesting one, and for that reason alone it is worth watching. But I can't help but feel that it would have been better as a live action film rather than an animation, if only because they would have had to keep it a lot cleaner than it is.

The story is told from a number of different perspectives, with each one revealing things from a slightly different viewpoint and unveiling more and more of the story. This form of storytelling may be becoming something of a cliche but it's handled with a surprising amount of skill here, which makes it even more of a disappointment that the animation is full of such crude and off-putting sexual images. It is only this that stops Six Of One from being one of the best short films I've seen for quite a while, and it does indeed stand in its way. Just as you're getting immersed in the story you have to pull away and grimace at the primitive and childish drawings of genitalia. But unless you are likely to be very offended by this, I would still suggest giving Six Of One a chance, if only for the well thought out story.
