I see the world in pictures. My eyes love the stop-motion animated short, “Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel.”

I love this movie! I see the world in pictures. My vision often blurs from the miasma of still and motion pictures. Luckily, on the weekends, my brain takes a break and goes to the movies.

This particular weekend, I plan on viewing “127 Days.” The mainstream-media audience will focus in on a big award show dedicated to commercially successful movies. My focus is usually limited to those nominated for best picture.

Like most years, this year I found myself somewhat entertained.

Those tales nominated for the top spot just didn’t evoke the same passion portrayed in “Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel” produced by Niels Michael Wee and directed and written by Sally Andersen Ward.

It is a stellar story told with great artistic clarity using stop-motion animation. (If you really want to know how much I love this movie, check out my post from last year, “A Stellar Story: Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel.”)

Unfortunately, while this film has garnered some critical success, and enjoys a small Facebook group, this amazing movie remains a sleeper.

What can I say? Wake up, world! Wake up, Academy!

Take a moment to enjoy this nearly, nine-minute work of wonder.

    I have not seen a movie in decades. I find reading and blogging a better way to use my time for. My blogger friends send me to films like this or to youtube and I find that sufficient. I enjoyed seeing this.I like the new look too!


  2. Thanks for dropping by, Ramana! I have to admit I see too many movies. Although they help me cope with things. For me, big-screen, commercially successful movies offer the ultimate in escape from reality. The time spent at the movies becomes my personl time not burdened with thoughts of the office or the family. Movies have become my silly, socially-acceptable vice—like my coffee.


  3. Kudos for the new look of the site go to Cory Watilo.I did design my own header image (themed to to look great with the Cory’s design). His theme does all the heavy lifting. It makes blogging fun again!Go, Cory! http://themes.posterous.com/.
