Absolutely Brilliant
18 May 2017 | by elisvanrijnSee all my reviews

Black Holes is one of the most EXCITING short film I've ever seen, I want to thank and salute the creators for the masterpiece they offered to the public with such generosity! I loved everything about it : it's BEAUTIFUL, very WELL CRAFTED, ORIGINAL, UNSETTLING, CLEVER, FUNNY... The list is endless. The satirical tone and the attention to details give access to several layers of understanding. What seems to be flimsy and dumb on the surface is actually very RICH and DEEP. The references are BRILLIANT. I found the rhythm and storytelling absolutely perfect. The parallel between humanity's thirst for greatness and knowledge (symbolized by science and space exploration) and the fragility of our condition (self-consciousness, insecurity of the main character) is amazing and hilarious. Apparently the creators are working on a SERIES. There has never been a 3D animated series of that quality on TV ever! This would be a REVOLUTION. I can't wait.
