Audience Reviews for Rabbit's Moon
This movie was so annoying. It's repetitive, slow, and strange. It's an experimental film so there's really not a story, but it has something to do with a clown loving the moon or something, I think. Anyway it got on my nerves, and I don't recommend seeing it.
Fireworks was what I was afraid Anger would be like, but this is an unexpected surprise. A very lovely and poignant commedia del'arte, done in beautiful blue tinge and accompanied by appropriate doo-wop songs. The repeated triple zoom-cut of the moon was really enchanting. Its influence resonates in the work of Lynch and Maddin (and is perhaps itself more than a little influenced by Cocteau).
It's blue... really blue. Not as blue as Jarman's Blue, but blue nevertheless. There's some stuff that's not blue, but it really is overwhelmingly blue. And there's a blue clown dude, who's blue (and white, but mostly blue) he's also blue (in the emotional sense) because he can't get the moon I think (the moon's white, but sorta blue.) There are some some other blue people and a couple blue kids and a blue rabbit. It really is very blue. *Edit* After compulsively watching this several more times over the past couple days, I've bumped it up to five stars. While it might not seem like anything other than a really pretty, fun little flick at first this is one of the few films that I think I could ever refer to as addictive. I could watch this all day, and smile and smile and smile and when night came I could go close my eyes a let the sweet sounds of doo-wop moon-songs lull me to sleep. I prefer the longer version, but the short is still fun in it's own blue little way.
