Shaw's mixture of variously textured animations helps create a rather psychedelic palette, jarring wonderfully with a manic score from Rani Sharone.

Succeeds through Shaw's unique visual style, but it rises to another level thanks to the impeccable vocal casting.

A funny, sad, strange, and altogether wonderful film that will speak to anyone who ever felt lost on the stormy and at times disorienting seas of adolescence.
February 6, 2019
It's a labor of love that is quickly paced and full of inventive animation and jokes.
December 20, 2018
A gonzo, spirited adolescent disaster movie that artistic types are guaranteed to love.
December 14, 2018
Mythologizing one's adolescence has rarely been driven home with such imaginative force.

Its lava-lamp visuals are consistently intoxicating, blurring the boundaries between physical spaces in ways that feel fitting to the scenario.

My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea is good for so many reasons, namely the unique video art and talented cast are the obvious ones, but what really resonated with me was the number of poignant moments happening at the most unexpected times.
December 23, 2017
One of the most unusual animated features to come out in the United States in a long time.

This is a cartoon that knows it's a cartoon.
September 15, 2017
One of the more visually stunning comedies in recent memory.
July 12, 2017
Simultaneously satirising the predictability of disaster movies and the vacuity of teenage social cliques, My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea is an odd amalgamation of contrasting tropes, but an engaging collage of experimental filmmaking.

My Entire High School Sinking into the Sea isn't as wonderful overall as the best of Studio Ghibli or Pixar, but it's the kind of small, unique picture that's only possible in animation.

My Entire... turns the sentiment "School sucks so hard"...-into a hellish, blackly comic apocalypse Carrie White would envy.

Chockful with the fall and rise of prototypical high-schooler conflicts and catastrophes, John Hughes on a variety of hallucinogens and pharma, but the tastily strange filmmaking is about handmade apocalyptic velocity and explosive score-settling.
May 5, 2017
Despite the rather constant stream of jokes, Shaw infuses his story with a fair amount of tension... Much more impressive than the script, though, is the animation: bright, layered, sometimes gory, and often kaleidoscopic.

It's a veritable Poseidon Adventure for a new century. The school may be wet, but Shaw's writing style is dry, having the tang of brilliant, bored high school kid comedy to them.
May 4, 2017
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.

Wonderfully creative in its approach to doomsday...strange work, but accomplished and quite funny when it wants to be.
