Movie Reviews

More Wonderful Work from Our Friends at the NFB!
BlaskoFilms | Coon Rapids, MN United States | 01/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another winner in the Best of the Best Series from the National Film Board of Canada. In this volume, you get to see one of the first computer generated films, "Hunger," by Peter Foldes, a pixelated cautionary tale, "Neighbors," by Norman McClaren and Grant Munro and a radiant tale of desire, "Paradise," by Ishu Patel. As always with the NFB, the styles are divergent and the animation is absolutely outstanding.

I've said it before: to watch Canadian animation is to understand the possibilities of animation, treated with liberty and respect in the hands of liberated, respected artists. This disc, and others from the NFB, will have you asking, "Why don't we have an NFB in the USA?!" Enjoy!"
