Movie Reviews

I literally could not take my eyes off of the screen

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll put it to you like this. The movie plays out an excellent example of how we fear the things we know nothing about when we are face to face with them. You really have to pay close attention to whats going on with the characters and overall story to get the main idea. I know it will be difficult the first time through ;) Its eerie, intriguing, sad, amazing all wrapped up in one very well executed work of art. I have no doubt that my fellow open-minded peers will find this as creative and fun as I did."
Trippers outta the woodwork?!u betcha!

"this is not your mother's claymation I say! the tom thumb puppet is so darn insanely tripped-out you'll swear someone put something in your drink,but there will be not a single ramone in sight!this film is chock full of great animation,colors,music,and tells the story of a very lost and curious character!those who liked this or are into jan svankmager,the brothers quay,dr suess,etc will be amused and most pleasently horrified!!!"
Animation at its mysterious and enchanting.

"I came upon this in the library and have since bought and given it several times. A combination of claymation and stop action, this is a magical world of strange creatures and laboratories, of tiny people you fall in love with, and evildoers who cannot win in the end. Imagine City of Lost Children, blended with a bit of the Popeye movie and Peewee's playhouse... it's absorbing and complex, taking you to worlds within worlds.And the soundtrack... noises, pings, music and mutterings, the soundtrack could stand on its own as an atmospheric soundscape.Why is this movie not known? See it."

"A true masterpiece. This film will stand out as one of the best animation features of all time. The director has made small figures come alive better than actors. The sound track is fantastic and the images you won't soon forget. This is a real treat for anyone who loves cinema!"
