Very stylish....but what about the ending?
7 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

"The Thomas Beale Cipher" is an incredibly stylish and arresting film. It has a lot going for it and I can't wait to see more stuff from these people. On the other hand, it seems incomplete and the ending left me a bit cold...but it's still worth your time.

The story is about a fictional codebreaker and the story begins during WWII--where the main character became famous for his invaluable work. Now, however, he's in search of cracking a code--a code that could lead to a HUGE treasure in gold. The problem is, someone is after him. Why and who they are, I haven't a clue.

The film is told using some of the strangest and most creative animation I have ever seen--and I have reviewed a lot of independent animated shorts. This one uses the look of wallpaper, tweed and other textures to tell a story about intrigue and suspense. It also has about the strangest animated eyes I've seen on characters. This all works together very well--creating a visual treat that works even better thanks to great music (making for a REALLY tense mood) and nice narration. The overall picture is really cool. But, unfortunately, the ending seemed very vague.
