Touching and well-done

Snack and Drink is the a mini-documentary about a 13-year-old 6 foot tall autistic boy, and the processes he goes through when going to a local 7/11 to get some Nerds and a Double Gulp. Those who have scene the film Waking Life (2001) will immediately recognize the idiosyncratic animation-over-live-action technique employed in both films. The images are often humorous and often surreal, but, in the end, we are handed a neat little package that shows just one instance from a person's life we may not normally see. This experiment in expansion is further enhanced by the colorful and unconventional visuals. The boy is the main speaker, and his unrehearsed dialog can be funny and provoking. This short film is well worth the time of anyone who stumbles across it. And who can forget the darkly lingering last words, "Is it true you once tried to kill your brother?" before the ABC-123-like credits swarm the screen.

Snack and Drink (1999) can be found on the Waking Life (2001) DVD and on the resfest 2000 DVD.
