Don't fight the spell it casts
13 February 2011 | by Felonious-PunkSee all my reviews

It's only ten minutes long, but I went through a wide range of reactions as it played. The first couple of minutes were so unexpectedly strange that I nearly shut it off. I'm happy I didn't, though, because things only got stranger and weirder for young Robert, and then I realized that I had been treated to a very pleasant afternoon through his eyes. Scary, happy, funny, sexy, and sad. I was amazed at the blend of animation and live action. It might not even be appropriate to call those things animation exactly because it seems to be real objects put together digitally... Well, maybe it'll just be better if you watch it. I guarantee it will be a feast for your eyes. And it will be a marvel for your mind that such depth and range of feeling can be squeezed into ten minutes. Ultimately lovely!
