A man enjoys a drink over and over and over again, for eight seconds each time. It's the same every time... or at least that's what it seems like at first. With every sip, something changes, making things a little more intriguing each time.
I'm writing this so at least there is a review for this movie. There isn't really much to say about it because it was so short. Overall it was okay and really weird. The background music was good for what it was and did a fine job. It was just really weird to be honest and very confusing. If want to go, "What the hell did I just watch." then this would be perfect for you.
This did what Neon Genesis Evangelion couldn't do in a TV series, a 2 movie recap a 2 movie ending, and a 4 part movie retelling. In a mere 5 minutes this masterpiece show how the entropy in our minds is an endless cycle much like the endless cycle of destruction and recreation that is life an death. First a man drinks from a mug in silence but as he repeats this day after day he is thrown into despair at the useless monotony of his life. this represents the human condition, we are born, we live, and finally we die. As he realizes this
the music builds as he falls deeper into insanity. Eventually, he realizes the uselessness of it all and sips his coffee content, neither caring nor worrying about the world around him. He is enlighten.
I place this up there with other great works such as Eva, Serial Experiments Lain, and Cory in the House as one of the most cerebral and deep anime's of all time .
I regret it.
I completely wasted 5 minutes to watch something that didn't even make sense. I'm not even sure what it was about. A film that was supposedly 8 seconds long that keeps looping. The artwork was not only terrible, but the music was also horrible too. To be honest, I'm not even sure exactly why I wasted my time on something like this, or why I watched something like this to the end. I would not recommend this to anyone unless they enjoy wasting time watching things that aren't even worth it, so unless you are someone like that, don't watch this.
The artwork is sweet. The concept is simple. And by the end I forgot how it started. As it is only 5 minutes long, I would recommend watching it for the sake of seeing it. If it was several episodes, then I dunno. Overall: Pretty cool.
