where did this short come from!!
20 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow. I saw this short right before seeing Jan Svankmajer's new film 'Lunacy'. And they were both probably the best films I've in the entire festival, maybe the best films I've seen all year. I've have no idea where this film came from or how it started out, but it rocks, I hope there's more where this came from! I guess it could be classified as an art house comedy, similar to something like napoleon dynamite with animation that looks like something Daniel Clowes would draw up. But seriously, this short is very smart and funny, and it looks like it was a lot of fun to make in the process. The mundane has never been so interesting.
