Well, those were different. Whether that’s a good or bad thing, I have yet to decide. But ignoring the dark nature of the pieces and from a pure animation standpoint, those short films were amazing. The lack of color and grittiness added to the dark nature of the pieces and the sound was perfect for such a film – minimal, with no music or voices; just the sounds of people walking, knocking on doors, gun shots, etc.
Story-wise, I’m still a little confused with what exactly happened, though I thought the old lady coming in and scolding the sniper at the end of Pizza Sangre was nice little plot twist/surprise.
Overall, those were not bad animations at all, just much darker than I think any of us expected.
