Audience Reviews for The Lost Thing

    The animation isn't quite faultless but the book is perfectly transposed and makes an outstanding short- wry, quirky, moving: a wise suburban fable.

    This was my favorite of the Oscar nominated animated shorts. Our narrator leads us through an urban Australian wasteland of sorts with busy people in their own worlds and signs all over barking orders. Our narrator is a teen who collects bottle caps. His life changes when he sees what could be a giant metal cookie jar with portals and hatches around it through which octopus like tentacles or crustacean like claws can protrude or retract. It is a strange mix of mechanics and flesh. It acts like a lost puppy. The teen can't call it anything but a "Lost Thing." Can he find a place for this lost thing? Very creative and dreamlike as we see what happens at the teen's home, at a bureaucratic office, and when they follow a mysterious sign. The CGI had a unique textured look that I thought was really delightful.
