Meaning Through Simplicity
29 October 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Although the plot-line is fairly simple. We Are The Strange's sub textual meaning coherent and easily identified through M Dot's use of archetypal characterization.M Dots use of mixed animation styles was perplexing and jaw dropping at the same time, all the while being strengthened by an exceptional soundtrack.

I was thoroughly spellbound by the whole film from beginning to end. It stimulated my own imagination so much that it inspired me to use the freedom of animation for telling stories from the deep recesses of my own brain.

I raise my goblet to you M Dot Strange. A film worthy of maniacal fandom indeed.
