Two people are locked in a blacked out apartment for ten days to cure lazy-eye. “The hallucinations start on day two.” Seems like overkill for lazy-eye, but whatever. ‘Day two” is when the image goes from black and white film to black and white animation. Written and directed by Thomas Hardiman and animated by Chris Cornwell, this short piece is clever and eccentric. The animation relates to the twin monologues wittily, and evokes Kim Deitch and Renee French and some names I’m not recalling right now. It’s a fun seven minutes I want to revisit.
I watched it on MUBI, but it also seems to be on Vimeo.
