In Absentia / The Comb
In Absentia: Quay Brothers “avant-grade” short (20 mins). The audio’s terrible, just a ringing din, and the visuals aren’t much better, particularly all the weird close-ups. Either arthouse, a parody of arthouse or totally shit – honestly couldn’t tell, maybe it’s all three. Close to the most boring thing I’ve ever seen. Don’t watch this unless you hate yourself. Not enjoyable.
The Comb: Quay Brothers short (18 mins) bizarre stop-motion animation that’s supposed to be a girl’s dream. There’s no real story, but it looks pretty OK, kind of like the nightmare before christmas, but much stranger. I’d only really check this out if you like stop motion animation. Who funds these guys?
