Critic Reviews for My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea
The animation set pieces scattered throughout the movie are frequently inspired, pulling in all manner of media and materials, and the backgrounds can be dazzling.
It's crazy and ridiculous at times. But I can't help agreeing with Assaf, who observes, of his companions' rescue plans, "I like it. It has the logic of a dream."
At first I wasn't receptive to Shaw's smudgy, wobbly visual clutter. Then I realized, "Oh, this is a thing."
Shaw's animation is a loopy, inventive mish-mosh of elements: thick pen outlines, fine etching work, washes of finger-painted color, and the occasional outbreak of full-on psychedelia.
Doesn't plumb the depths of adolescent emotions and high-school politics so much as skims the surface in a psychedelic dinghy.
Mostly - as that title deserves - it's a funny, imaginative trip down a high-school rabbit hole, in which we're reminded that catastrophic disasters may come and go but what matters in high school is where you fit on the school's social ranking.
Audience Reviews for My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea
Unaware of this being a first feature or debut for any matter. I found this film to be a hilarious self parody of high school life intersected with the plot to 'A Poseidon Adventure'. This unique film uses a very distinctive graphic novel inspired animation and look to it's characters and setting. it can be described as a sort of flash animation taking up an amateur comic design all to encompass this world of it's satirical message. Even while the animation is wonderful to look at and is fluid in most parts, the film is also surrealistic using the very unusual conventions to it's advantage to express moments of a suspenseful nature or subconscious behavior within the character's visual thought portrayal. Other than that the writing is excellent able to take what's cliche about high school life and turn it on it's head with a disaster plot that doesn't take itself too seriously at all, with plenty of laugh out load jokes. Lastly, I didn't think the film hit any high notes as being a huge recommendation on my part , though I really enjoyed it for what it is, an impressive and enjoyable debut animated feature.
