I had the good fortune to see this short in The Animation Show
(both in the theatres and on my new DVD) and it was one of my
favorites in the program.
A soldier wakes up in a endless plane of grey and white with a gaping hole in his stomach. Nearby he finds a brand new widescreen TV which informs him he is dead and in heaven. Not wanting to be stuck here for eternity, he promply blows his brains out.
This short is cleverly ironic in that the soldier starts a hero, turns into a coward and ultimately ends up a fool. A well animated short...well deserved of its Oscar nommination.
Some of my friends accidently found out about this film on the internet one day and from there it spread by word of mouth across the school to me. I was skeptical at first, but when I watched it I could not stop laughing! The absurdity of the segments (which were sent to the ficticous "Family Learning Channel" amongst other things) get more violent, absurd, bloody, and hillarious right down to the cataclysmic ending. It's definatly worth a watch, and I believe it is out on DVD now **** of ****
