Animation genius Don Hertzfeldt, whose 2000 film “Rejected” is one of the funniest animated shorts ever made, has delivered a more varied and textured work than any of his previous line drawing material. The film begins with a man evolving into a chaotic mess of people saying things like “Give me money,” and, “Let go of my leg.” The film then turns into a sci-fi odyssey with painted and backlit material done entirely in-camera. While not trying to be as funny, Hertzfeldt here shows even more maturation of form than the crumpled paper finale of “Rejected.”
