|Short 6 - Insanity|
Genres: Drama, Special Interests, Animation
There's a dark underpinning of meanness and a lack of humanity contained within several of the short films in Short 6: Insanity. The animated "Bad Plant" and "Billy's Balloon" are both misanthropic contributions, and only ... more »

"I am not speaking for my own short, Black Coffee, but the other shorts on SHORT 6 are very rewarding. I must say I am very proud to be in such great company.Regarding wrong RC. I received my copy last Friday and checked it out today. Short 6 can be played on our DVD players in Europe. So I hope Amazon changes the region code ASAP."

"This review refers to "Short 6 - Insanity",DVD edition(Warner Bros)...It never ceases to amaze me how a writer,director(often the same person), a camera man and as little as one actor can convey in just a few minutes a great story or idea. "Short 6" is a terrific example of these works and a good selection depicting a wide variety of short subject material. "Insanity" is a good subtitle for this one as the films here range from the comic to the surreal.The films are as diverse as their creators. Wonderfully animated shorts "Billy's Balloon"(good things gone bad), and "Midnight Dance"(a waltz with some ghostly figures) will keep you captivated and make you wish they were longer. "Frankie Goes To Hollywood" is delightful and will keep you smiling as you spend some time with the famous bull dog from the film "Armageddon", along with his co-stars, Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi and Billy Bob Thornton. "Bovine Vendetta" may [scare you] some but "El Banquette" will really get your attention. And probably one the favorites of the film festivals is "Blue City", a beautifully filmed piece about 4 people whose lives are about to connect.There are nine pieces in all ranging in time from 2 minutes to 19 minutes. The DVD is grouped by catagories, and each catagory has its own menu to navigate. Some have director commentary or production notes. There are also some "commercials" for Timex, which I found cute the first couple of times, but by the 5th time it was annoying.Other than that little complaint and the fact that there are no subtitles or closed captions to make this enjoyable to more viewers,I found this to be an entertaining peek at some fine filmaking by some creative minds that are sure to bring us more entertaining film in the future.The quality of the DVD is very good. Nice picture(some in widescreen, some in full)excellent sound ranging from Dolby Dig 2.0 surround to 5.1. If you enjoy independent films, that are short but sweet or are looking for something out of the ordinary, this is a good selection.Thank you and enjoy.....Laurie"
