Until this morning I’d never seen Francois Alaux, Herve de Crecy and Ludovic Houplain‘s Logorama, which won the Best Animated Short Film Oscar six weeks ago. It appeared online around April 5th. It’s a ironic, inventive, devastating critique of what a corporate-branded nightmare this country has become. The dry laceration effect is sublime. That Dean Martin tune is perfect.
Logorama was presented at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, and also opened the 2010 Sundance Film Festival — missed it both times! I love the Strangelove ending. The Pringles are voiced by David Fincher and Andrew Kevin Walker; actors Joel Michaeley and Bob Stephenson are also featured.
