What cartoons would look like if they were animated by 4 year-olds
One review for this film said that it sneaks up on you. Well, I waited and watched and nothing in particular sneaked up on me. I really wanted to have the film ultimately turn out to me more interesting but it never really did.
The animated film FLUX is about the life cycle from one generation to the next and it's told with only gibberish words--no other dialog. The problem for me, though, is although its art style is unique, this was NOT a good thing. The overall look was like a cartoon created by a 4 year-old--complete with very, very sloppy kid-like drawings. About the only interesting aspect of all this was that occasionally something goofy happened in the film--such as someone screaming or a baby popping out, but that was about all.
Overall, I'd rate the animation a 1 or 2 and the story about a 4. Splitting the difference, somewhat, I arrive at an overall score of 3. I'm sorry, but I just didn't get it.
