Has just about the densest screenplay of any film of any length made in the English language in the 21st Century.
Nominee for Oscar Best Animation Short 2016
It's a bittersweet and thoughtful meditation on life...
Hertzfeldt crafts a vision of the future with more detail and depth than any feature length sci-fi in recent memory.
...a morbidly witty retort to our continual quest for a fountain of youth.
[A]bsolutely astonishing... [C]rams in more SF ideas than you'll find in a decade's worth of summer blockbusters.
Nominated for Best Short Animated Film at the Oscars. Twisted and mind-bending sci-fi in a minimalist animated style. Young Emily (Emily Prime) is visited by her future cloned self who explains all the weird and wonderful technological developments of the future. Satiric and droll especially when Emily Prime, who sounds like a toddler, drops non sequiturs about all the advanced topics the older Emily tries to teach her. It raised my eyebrows, got a chuckle a couple times, but was not my favorite.
One of the best animated shorts I've seen in a very long time. Packs more emotion and meditative-insight in 17 minutes than most films that are six times longer.
A truly haunting piece of art that is available on Netflix right now.
