First part of Hertzfeldt's masterpiece. Reminds me of those post-modern philosophical novels. Every time I watch it I find something different, something new. I play with the bits presented and in my mind I make something own from it.

Random, quirky images and scenes is all that this short has going for it. No real story or humor. Hell, it doesn't even have cool visuals, music, or an "aura" of any kind; just a bunch of random scenes, hallucinations, and when things get too boring, flashing lights. Not exactly hard to reproduce, either. The only good thing about is that a bunch of pretentious film snobs can now jerk each other off to how "brilliant" and "deep" this "underground artist" is. Nope, it's just shit.

Hertzfeld manages to create an interesting protagonist and a tense and melancholic mood with only few tools. It's a delightful bitter snack covered in dark, dark chocolate; and though little in size it somehow manages to make you feel satisfied and full, albeit with a funny taste in your mouth that stays there for days...okay, I don't really know how to review this. Just watch it. Anywho: You'll laugh, you'll cry. Other than that there's not really much to say.

The usual mean-spirited, tasteless, juvenile stick-figure animation from Don Hertzfeldt, only more annoying this time because it's longer. Why does ANYBODY like this guy's work?

I had forgotten Hertzfeldt for many years and then ran into this. It's a fabulous piece of cinema but somehow I'm not surprised he had it in him. I always saw the spark. His ability to do so much with so little (so little time, so little plot, so little drawing) is truly stunning. Equally exceptional is his seamless combination of intelligence and sensitivity with juvenile cynicism and death-obsession. It yields both biting humor and harrowing existential angst.

A masterpiece. Beautiful story, animation is incredible and the music just ties this together into a package of excellence. Hertzfeldt at his best.

Not as good as its successor, but this is still among the best animations I've seen in my life. It evokes some surprisingly deep feelings, despite how simple everything is, and I somehow feel like it just wouldn't be nearly as good without Don Hertzfeldt's narration.

A wonderfully tragic short film that I try and show as many people as I can. For only lasting 16 minutes or so, it has some lasting effects that are both thought-provoking and hilarious.

God bless Hertzfeld who seems to be wondering out loud just how aware of our own death we'll be when the time comes, or if it will be a surreal, confusing experience with our own demise being the only possible happy ending, that he can provide us with films like this that show that the man keeps finding boxes to think outside of.

Brilliant short but my friend and I both agree that we couldn't watch it more than once or twice without doing serious damage to our spirits. Well, he thought that, I thought it was beautiful.

I'm not a fan of surrealism, but this is brilliant, even if a bit weird. The style is fantastic and it is darkly comical in the face of an existential crisis.

Successfully nightmarish account of illness and mental disturbance. Perhaps because the filmmaker is not trying so hard to be "hilarious" he has been able to create a more affecting short work.

Oh, what a lovely psychological experimental short this is. Don Hertzfeldt is a creative genius. Creating a simple character with a few strokes, more complex and likeable then most cinematic films these days. Observing how Bill relates to an increasingly deformed world and a terrible society is thought-provoking and fun, thanks to a great sense of black humour. A terrific and highly recommended short, both in style and substance.

It's ok. For some reason it came off as pretentious and I couldn't really get into it. Not that interesting or funny either. It does have its own style, but I'm not particularly a fan. Even as a short film, its novelty wears off quickly.

Entertaining, and funny at points, but not as deep, or insightful, as many would like to think. College film school students will eat this up.

It's doesn't peer into the depths of the human soul as much as some people would like to say, but, it's an oddly touching short nontheless. We all expected funny from Hertzfeldt, which this definitely is, but the main thing that rises out of this film, despite how absurd it is, is beauty. Fantastic. Score is not a grade.
