Movie Reviews

Not really that anxious, but easily worth the price
derwood harris | W Cola, SC | 11/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Only one or two of these are actually what might be called anxious. "Spokes on the Wheel of Torment," the animated Hell from Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delight is the most of all. "Sneak Attack" with a DJ superhero and his sidekick robot attacking the fortress of Mexican wrestling midget bad guys is next, but its just cool. It took me a few watchings but I finally realized that the weapon-watch on his wrist is actually a tiny turntable and he scratches to emits waves at the enemy octopus. Except for those two the rest is relatively sedate. "Lulu" and "Altair" are interesting visually and musically, but there is hardly a storyline. I am not one of those people who need a storyline, but "Altair" anyway, is way too long for nothing but mood. The third one of the set about gay Jimmy Olsen is more interesting than the other two, but still. Jim Trainor's two "line drawing" animations are hugely minimalistic but you cannot help but be entranced. The lack of music and the engagingly hypnotic monotone puts you right into the lives of the animals. No razzle or dazzle, just pure connection, like Adam Elliot's "Brother." I can't remember the rest. So you've got a very mixed bag of action and color, quiet engagement, style without much substance, and whatever. But even the parts I didn't really like so much were interesting just to see how the style was used, I just wish they had some direction. Having seen it now, I would definitely buy it again. 5 stars even with it's flaws."
