5.0 out of 5 stars sadistic, violent, and depressing. Yay! April 5 2008
By Randy Spong - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am in full agreement with the descriptions given by several of the reviewers who rated this collection so poorly; where my opinion differs, however, is that I find all those points to be excellent reasons to buy and enjoy this collection.

If you're not afraid to admit that you have both a strong sense of dark humor and still retain your childlike sense of wonder, you will very likely enjoy the shorts in this set. Some of the shorts are very though-provoking and beautiful, and others are simply absurd. The constant that ties every piece together is an attempt to push boundaries and get people to look at animation in a different way, be it in pencil sketch or in high quality stop motion (an underrepresented art!).

Don't let a couple negative reviews scare you off: this is a thoroughly enjoyable set with lots of replay value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange and beautiful. Dec 31 2007
By Andrea E. Lane - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD is easy to misunderstand. It is not designed to be like other mainstream cartoon shorts. However, Hertzfeldt and Judge have made incredible, thought-provoking choices for those who are willing to view with an open mind. Some of the shorts are not the best, but the majority of them are interesting, deep, and substantial, touching on some of the most fascinating aspects of philosophy and life. Make sure you are watching it with friends who you know will get the beauty of this set, because it really isn't for everyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadistic, violent, and depressing Oct. 18 2007
By Truffaut Souffle - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Does nobody know how to make entertaining cartoons anymore? This collection was a rip-off of my hard-earned money. I bought it based upon the fact the Mike Judge was behind the selection process. If you like your animation cynical, depressing, and sadistic, then this collection is for you. Myself, I like to smile when I watch cartoons.
