Storyline

"Even folks who know all about the prairie dog controversy will be enlightened by VARMINTS. From all appearances, the issue is far more complex than environmentalists vs. property owners, preservationists vs. developers; or rednecks vs. vegetarians and animal-rights activists. Viewers everywhere will ponder who, in the grand scheme of things, who the true varmints are." Westword Written by Anonymous

Absolutely beautiful animation
22 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely beautiful animation. The gritty, industrial parts are gritty, metallic and cold. The beautiful parts are warm, free and ethereal. The characters are clever and expressive. I could have watched for an hour. The music is great too. This is just an amazing piece of work. I'm so glad I got to see this again. Thanks to the Atlanta Film Festival for bringing this animation back to Atlanta! There is also an illustrated book of the same title by Helen Ward and Marc Craste. Some view this animation as social or political commentary, and I suppose you could look at it that way. But the commentary, I believe, is about the extremes. As they say, "Everything in moderation."
