A series of 5-minute line animations (drawn in the rough style and with the minimalist plots of David Lynch's The Angriest Dog in the World comic strip) featuring an angry and violent Neanderthal, and his family and neighbors.
Boat is a short film from David Lynch. I have to first say that I am a huge fan of Lynch's feature film work where I have found he has often displayed a touch of genius. However, I cannot unfortunately say the same thing with regard to his post Mulholland Drive (2001) output which mainly has consisted of short films. Boat is quite honestly a fairly typical example where there is nothing more than a specific tone and little beyond that. The content of this one has Lynch himself at the controls of a small boat while a female voice-over relates her connection with it. It really isn't very interesting at all with little to recommend it in any way. It also suffers visually from the digital video on which it was shot on. Lynch became entranced with this format as it allowed him to make films more easily himself with no need for much money or extra personnel. Which is all well and good, the unfortunate thing about this though is that the films are almost all universally uninteresting and lacking; and Boat is sadly another example.
