I Look for Missing Things in the Cushions.
12 February 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

An elderly woman leaves her retirement home and takes a trip to the shore, carrying her head in her arm in this nominee for Best Animated Short Subject Oscar in 2016.

This short film concerns itself with a none-too-subtle metaphor for senility; once I recognized this -- about thirty seconds into the film -- I began going through the items and characters offered to me, and meditate on how they related to the idea of dementia. Unfortunately, that intellectual pleasure soon faded and I was left with a movie that was simply a meditation on a miserable state of being. I suppose it's well done, but I can't recommend it.
