A "Covert" Affair
28 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A magnificent piece of work. It's not the best animated short film in the world, but it was really good. I'm not sure if I would call it predictable, it's just after you watch the ending you see it to be obvious. What makes this interesting is the fact that it is supposed to be taking place in America (context clues in the books the "decrypter" has on his shelf, like, among others, "America's Secret Establishment: An Introduction to the Order of Skull & Bones" which is supposedly a Yale University Secret Survey), however, most of the characters have a British accent, and it is produced by Sorts International and Channel 4 (a British broadcasting channel; not NBC for Comcast). There is no problem for that, I am just curious as to why America was chosen. This leads me to a question, does this short act as a political statement? Whatever the case, every one should watch this. It will only take three minutes and twenty-six seconds away from your life… what's the harm in that?
