I first saw Don Hertzfeldt's animated short Rejected about 13 or 14 years ago. Lines like "my spoon is too big!" and "I am a banana!" are a part of my lexicon of humor, but I was totally unaware that Don has continued to produce animated films in his same, unique style. Last night a friend showed me the feature on Netflix called It's Such a Beautiful Day, an hour long film which is actually a compilation of 3 short films he made. It's almost entirely stick figures, and it follows the life of Bill, a rather bland person who battles mental health issues and a degenerative brain disease. The humor is very dark, but also really necessary to contrast how tragic a story it was. It definitely takes you to some uncomfortable places, ala David Lynch films. It was so tragic and depressing, but also funny, uplifting, and beautiful. What a masterpiece. If your mental health is questionable, it may not be a good thing to watch. He's got another short on Netflix called World of Tomorrow where people survive death as digitally copied consciousness, and the consciousness of a long dead person meets a clone descendant of herself from the future. It was also a bit of a mindfuu, but really it's an incredible piece of art. If you like things that are depressing and tragic, but in a beautiful way, and with very dark humor, I suggest you check these out. He has these films available on Blu-Ray from his site www.bitterfilms.com too, if you don't have Netflix.
