This documentary follows cult British band The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on their first coast-to-coast US tour. America was their musical inspiration, but what will Americans make of their British humor and ukulele musicianship?
A flatbed editing table is snapped on. A woman's hands reach in and out of the frame, cutting and editing a reel of film. She splices, scrubs, rewinds and rolls the sound and images. ... See full summary »
In this short animation, Oscar®-winning director Chris Landreth uses a common social gaffe - forgetting somebody's name - as the starting point for a mind-bending romp through the unconscious. Inspired by the classic TV game show Password, the film features a wealth of animated celebrity guests who try (and try, and try) to prompt Charles to remember the name. Finally, he realizes he will simply have to surrender himself to his predicament. Written by
"Subconscious Password" is an 11-minute short film by Oscar-winning writer and director Chris Landreth and this 2013 film is his most recent work. It got on the short list for the Oscars again too I think, but did not manage to get in finally this time. If you know a bit about Landreth, you will know that this is an animated movie, although there is a live action impact in here too. And here, Landreth gives us his take on famous people and the absurdity that is television. But there is always some strangeness attached to Landreth's projects too and this one here is not an exception. It is a very bizarre watch. sadly, I must say it was just too wild and all over the place for my taste and I did not find it entertaining or memorable. I have seen some better work by the filmmaker and I don't think you should watch this one here without having seen any of his older work.
