The Animation Show 2005

Rated NR 2005

There are no "wraparound" sequences from Don Hertzfeldt or Mike Judge this time around, but both continue to seek selections that push the boundaries, including a documentary short ("F.E.D.S."), rotoscope-animated Waking Life-style, about the people who hand out free samples in the grocery store. David Russo's "Pan With Us" features live-action footage shot using animation techniques, Peter Cornwall's excellent "Ward 13" suggests a cross between "Wallace and Gromit" and Lars von Trier's The Kingdom, Tomek Baginski's "Fallen Art" is twisted genius, Jonathan Nix's "Hello" is poignant and clever, and Tim Miller's "Rock Fish" spins a Tremors-inspired CG-tale of a futuristic redneck on a heavy-duty fishing trip. On the other hand, Georges Schwizgebel's "The Man With No Shadow" and Wendy Tilby & Amanda Forbis' "When the Day Breaks" feel a little too abstract and pointless (both are funded by government grants, natch). Bill Plympton's amusing "Guard Dog" kicks things off, and Hertzfeldt's latest -- a bit pretentious, but still well done -- closes the show.
