7 / 10

quite special stop motion animation

Incredible creative, quite weird imagination, shockingly brutal and also contain sociology prophesy, with the style of anomalism! Something like strange mixture of Jan Svankmajer and George Orwell.

10 / 10

Astonishing stop-motion masterpiece

Watcing this film is like seeing a master being surpassed. Heavily reminiscent of the works of Czech surrealist filmmaker Jan Svankmajer, S He uses impeccably realised stop-motion techniques to tell disturbing story of oppression, resistance, revolution, revenge, and cyclical self-destruction, all made using the refuse of civilisation, as the objects given uncanny life through the truly jaw-dropping animation are comprised of common everyday items which we throw away every day. The talent and artistry involved in producing this film is world-class. As far as the art of stop-motion animation, this is perfection.

If you're a jaded film buff looking for something you haven't seen before, seek this out immediately. If you have the slightest interest in stop-motion animation, this is esesntial viewing. Run, don't walk, to see this. I might sound hyperbolic because I've just finished watching it and am still reeling from the experience. It's absolutely incredible. Like nothing else. I'm shocked there aren't more reviews here.
