Critic Reviews for The District (Nyocker!)
A raucously fun cartoon that combines raunchiness, political satire and hip-hop to sometimes exhilarating effect.
The Hungarian cartoon feature The District! is a last-minute shoo-in for the title of 2007's most original animated film.
Fifteen credited artists labored over the distinct animated style, a jerky collage in which cutouts of actors' heads are blended with animated bodies and surroundings; result is crude yet novel.
Eye-popping as The District! is, the overarching geopolitical satire is a haphazardly lobbed grenade too dim-witted to be explosive.
By the time The District is over, one might not have a clear idea what the film is about in a singular sense. But as a free-associating spoof of the modernworld, it's a hoot.
Audience Reviews for The District (Nyocker!)
I've seen 2 Hungarian films in the last month, Taxidermia and this. The nicest thing I can say about this film is that it was interesting, but for a comedy I never even smiled once. I know a lot of times people say their comedy's a cultural thing, especially in European cultures, but c'mon, it's just not funny. I don't know how many times I've heard something isn't funny because of the translation, but believe me, it'd have to be one amazing translation to make some of the European jokes funny. (I do say this in jest by the way, I am poking fun not preaching hate of European humor).
