he obviously spent so much time, why not develop the plot?
Probably the most noteworthy aspect of this film is the fact that you will not see animation like this anywhere else. Who else scratches on plaster to animate? This is a truly unique work.
Most scenes were very well laid out, some were not so great. Many of the backgrounds were quite beautiful. I will say that it lacked in plot however. I know this was based on Crime and Punishment, but the story seems to drag on and on.
He also seems to have a thing with flies, keyholes, and clocks; you'll notice if you watch his other work...
All in all, pretty impressive, it's too bad that his work is so hard to get a hold of.
