Another stupid film from Don Hertzfeldt--and that's a good thing!
13 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The animated films from Don Hertzfeldt are very simply drawn--with stick figures and only in black and white (except when he occasionally tosses in some blood). So if you're looking for brilliant art, this certainly isn't a short film for you. However, where his films do excel is at being both funny and totally bizarre. Because they are so weird, they are certainly not for all tastes but are great for just the right off-kilter type of person.

This film is broken down into many little vignettes. In each, an innocent guy comes up to a lady and says something very innocuous. And in each case, the lady turns psycho and does something absolutely violent and horrible in return. I'm sure it's possibly trying to say something profound about male/female communication, but I really liked it for the insane reactions. They were so far over the top that they made me laugh again and again. Give it a watch and see if you, too, are the sort of person who might appreciate the oddness of Don Hertzfeldt.
