short, to the point, and beautifully animated
22 June 2018 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

'Syrinx' is just one among many obscure avant garde animated shorts I have seen over the recent years, and, like nearly every other film that fits into this "obscure-avant-garde-animated-shorts" subcategory I've created, I really dug it. The animation style is extremely beautiful and eye-popping, so much so I barely payed much attention to what was going on in the story, though some elements of it are obviously blatantly clear regardless. It was quite mesmerizing to look at and is accompanied by a seductive score and is available online for free in a very nice high quality print so I recommend everyone check it out considering it's not even three minutes in length.
