Not to be confused with the short by Hertzfeldt by the same name.
23 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In 2011, Don Hertzfeldt released the third of his films about a stick figure named Bill. The title of this is "It's Such a Beautiful Day". The following year, the three films were combined and the title to this full-length film was ALSO "It's Such a Beautiful Day"! Talk about confusing...but so are all these films!

The three films are absurdist to say the least. While there is an underlying theme of Bill and his brain tumor and the disintegration of his personality, so much of the film appears to make no sense-- which is pretty mush like ALL of the cartoonist's films! I like this weird nonsensical style but many won't. As I watched this film at home, my wife practically screamed and told me to turn it off--as it was 'making me crazy'! Yes, it is often cacophonous and confusing and is NOT a film for everyone. My daughter saw this film at a film festival in Philadelphia and many in the audience loved it and many hated it. Definitely NOT everyone's cup of tea, that's for sure. I enjoyed it but still greatly prefer the filmmaker's "Rejected" as well as "Wisdom Teeth" and "Billy's Balloon".
