Animation on "Fish Heads Figue" and "Tidy Monster"

This week's animation picks...

"Fish Heads Fugue" and "Tidy Monster"

Fish Heads Fugue and Other Tales of Twilight:
A strange and claustrophobic film of a little girl running through vignettes in an impossible rotating puppet theater. Although CG, it’s beautifully detailed with all the decay and style of Svankmajer and other stop-motion animators. (6:20 minutes)

Tidy Monster: Madness as portrayed by the madman’s environment. (Let the record show, my room is anything but tidy....I’m a little worried about Pablo, though.) (5 minutes)
