Labyrinth is an animation film which boasts wonderful collage illustrations. It is about a man with wings flying through modern cities from the early 1900's, avant-garde surrealism is evident in the cutout pictures. Strange faces and creatures pop up and disappear. It is interesting from both a historical and artistic standpoint.
It is rich with metaphor and critical of the totalitarian state. The images are an odd assortment, mainly emerging from what seems like old ads from the 1890's so it makes it quite unique.
As a time capsule it encompasses what is lacking in American animation, namely the tie to surrealism.
