My kids and I used to love to watch animation in the nineties. The National Film Board of Canada, the Mind's Eye series, Disney, early Pixar, Miramar--all vhs, of course. We've replaced some of it, but not all so it's nice to keep moving with collections like the Animation Show. We're all older now and I never worry about appropriateness like I used to. Because animation is a wide open field and there are possible weirdnesses you may feel the need to preview the selections. I have several favorites: Cathedral, Bathtime in Clerkenwell, Rockfish, Plymton's Parking, and Guard Dog, Aria, Das Rad. Special mention for La Course A L'Abime 1992--that's some superb thinking there. Adam Elliot's pieces Uncle, Cousin, and Brother have hilarious looks at real life situations--thankfully, on the screen. Pan With Us certainly looks like a lot of work--all of these border on deep art--amazing visuals and accompanying musics. Fascinating, touching, and possibly confrontational in character. All without going to the theater or art gallery. Moving Illustrations of Machines is the kind of work I'd like to see more of, but this Show is about a variety of animations and even if there's one or two that are hard to sit through there's always a payoff.
