An exceptional program that starts off strong and only gets better as it goes, the 19th Annual Animation Show of Shows overflows with charm while containing more provocative observations about the nature of existence.
Like most omnibus programs, the offerings are a mixed bag, but this year's 16 titles showcase a gratifying range of styles and subjects, with work that includes veterans and newcomers, the experimental and the commercial.
For viewers weary of the overly detailed look of many recent American CG features, the "Show of Shows" offers a welcome reminder that an animated film can be as intimate and personal as a signature.
This curated 90-minute program of 16 animated short films from around the world offers some laughs, some gorgeous visuals and a fair amount of reflection on troubled times and assorted anxieties.
The 19th Annual Animation Show of Shows is a tough call for those seeking consistency. But there are certainly enough enticing shorts within the package to make the weaker portions acceptable to overlook.
This year the best film was 53 years old.
... there isn't one dud in the 16 shorts offered in a perfectly paced 90 minutes.
