Being pretty (2017), No monsters (2017)

Two parts of a strange and somewhat puzzling dystopia made in a coherent mix of sometimes oversimplified 2D and nicely made 3D, all looking very retro-stylized and »vectorish«. The jury is still out on this one, so let’s just wait … Continue reading

Tigerland (2000)

A war movie minus the war, instead concentrating itself on the psychological aspects of military life. In focus is an odd outsider, trying his very best to keep up the cynic facade. Intense, loud, cliché-infested, foul-mouthed, and overbearingly macho. Maybe … Continue reading

Lovebites (2015)

Weirdlooking characters and garishly glossy aesthetics in a grotesque little storyline with ambivalent conclusion. An enjoyable bagatelle. Maybe in my book of all-devouring love.

Almost sickeningly beautiful, it tells a mysterious little story of friendship, insecurity, and fear. Can’t say I understand much, but everything is strangely evocative. Not sure … Continue reading

敲敲 [Out of sight] (2012)

Told with nice well-rounded animation and splendid handmade-looking backgrounds, this is a strangely apt visualization of how our senses »create« the world around us. A slightly oldfashioned, fascinating, and original bagatelle. Maybe in my book of inner vision.
