This review refers to "Short 6 - Insanity",DVD edition(Warner Bros)...
It never ceases to amaze me how a writer,director(often the same person), a camera man and as little as one actor can convey in just a few minutes a great story or idea. "Short 6" is a terrific example of these works and a good selection depicting a wide variety of short subject material. "Insanity" is a good subtitle for this one as the films here range from the comic to the surreal.
The films are as diverse as their creators. Wonderfully animated shorts "Billy's Balloon"(good things gone bad), and "Midnight Dance"(a waltz with some ghostly figures) will keep you captivated and make you wish they were longer. "Frankie Goes To Hollywood" is delightful and will keep you smiling as you spend some time with the famous bull dog from the film "Armageddon", along with his co-stars, Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi and Billy Bob Thornton. "Bovine Vendetta" may [scare you] some but "El Banquette" will really get your attention. And probably one the favorites of the film festivals is "Blue City", a beautifully filmed piece about 4 people whose lives are about to connect.
There are nine pieces in all ranging in time from 2 minutes to 19 minutes. The DVD is grouped by catagories, and each catagory has its own menu to navigate. Some have director commentary or production notes. There are also some "commercials" for Timex, which I found cute the first couple of times, but by the 5th time it was annoying.Other than that little complaint and the fact that there are no subtitles or closed captions to make this enjoyable to more viewers,I found this to be an entertaining peek at some fine filmaking by some creative minds that are sure to bring us more entertaining film in the future.
The quality of the DVD is very good.

To me this has been one of the most disappointing Short collections I've bought. I say that because of the others I've bought I usually love all of the short films, but of this one I LOVED Billy's Balloon, Blue City and Midnight Dance. Black Coffee was not bad, but mostly what I liked about it was one the dance songs in the soundtrack that I haven't heard since I was in high school (which wasn't that long ago). I am ashamed to admit (as a Latino woman) that the Latin-American short only inspired this reaction from me: cool camerawork... hey, it's from Mexico, wadda ya know... hey, that's the guy from La Ley de Herodes!...and then I fell asleep. I tried to watch it again on another occassion, but it was impossible.

I bought this out of intrigue and I love short films. Short 6-Insanity, is high quality dvd with features galore for dvdphiles and the films are great entertainment to anyone who has a taste for the bizzare. I am especially fond of the short "Midnight Dance" which is an amazing and beautiful animated film.

This is a very nice collection of short films. Animation fans should find "The Bad Plant", "Billy's Balloon", and "Nocturne" especially satisfying. They are three of the best animation festival shorts of the past year.
