Ruben Brandt, Collector is weird and cool and witty and seductive; I can't remember when an animated feature had this level of visual appeal for me.

I wasn't wild about it... I think it tries to be live-action a little too hard in some places.

Even if you don't know the names of every painting flashing across the screen you are aware that you are witnessing masterpieces from almost the first frame.

Krstic has achieved quite a lot, putting on screen a style unlike anything else seen in the year's best animated films. That the storyline in the end distracts from such an impressively drawn film may be a dealbreaker for some...or it may not.

Ruben Brandt, Collector is an intricately plotted, hyper-stylized piece of eye candy with art - the love of, the need for, the inability to escape from - at its wildly beating heart.
