The Drag is both entertaining and educational in showing the dangers of smoking
31 December 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Nominated for the 1966 Oscar, this animated short from the National Film Board of Canada depicts a man on a psychiatrist's couch who's telling him about how he came to start smoking in order to join the "cool" crowd and after finding about the cancer scare has a difficult time stopping. Filled with background collages of various cig ad slogans as well as many figures the protagonist tries to emulate, this jazz-scored animation project is both entertaining and educational in showing how difficult it really is to kick an addictive habit as illustrated by a dream sequence when he tries for the first time. So for that reason, The Drag is highly recommend.
