It's a bold attempt to get inside the mind of someone who's losing theirs, and Hertzfeldt has a grip on the idea and reality of death that's deeply unsettling.

Mr. Hertzfeldt proves that pizazz isn't everything. Enriching his bare-bones drawings with a few well-deployed visual tricks, he tells the story of an Everyman who at first seems merely Thurberesque.

Seeing "the years [slip] out of [Bill's] head" in this 71-minute compendium is nothing short of revelatory.

There's no denying that Hertzfeldt has a voice and a vision, or that It's Such a Beautiful Day is unique. I think William Fisher, wherever he may be, would appreciate it greatly.

Funny, oddly affecting and cherishably personal: in a better world, this would be on 300 screens, and filler such as The Croods would have to be smuggled in under the radar.

An existential flipbook and a heartbreaking black joke: stickmen have never looked so alive.

An original and amusing animation that demonstrates the undeniable talent of Don Hertzfeldt.

One of the great films about memory, perspective and past history.

Underneath It's Such a Beautiful Day's simple surface and droll humor is a philosophical core as dense as any film's.

One of the most philosophically and narratively complex films of the year.

Hertzfeldt's simple drawings, evocative imagery and melancholy narration come together most beautifully in the finale, which suggests that the end of life isn't as bad as an unending one.

Will have you laughing through tears while pondering the meaning of life, the universe and everything.

Highly original animated divertissement, filled with surprising depth and humor.

By favoring the repetition of gestures over plot or graphics, Don Hertzfeldt argues that animation is, at its essence, a kinetic rather than simply visual form of expression.
