It's a dream you keep dreaming for a few seconds after you wake up, a ladder between dreams and consciousness. I admire it more than I love it.

Effectively creepy and a good portrayal of some light nightmare fuel. Score is a little over the top at times.

A perfectly realized (and rationalized) bit of dream logic.

Maybe this piece contains good work concerning conception, camera and execution but it still is not my cup of tea. Only for people who like obscure, bizarre pieces.

Although it's very pretty in it's own "creppy stop-motionTM" way, it still feels highly disconnected and is so introverted it barely has any emotional or even intellectual resonance. Fortunately, the ending makes sure this is not consistent through the entirety.

This is very close to the feeling of a dream/nightmare, I still got the chills. Brilliant conception, camerawork and execution.
