Punch & Judy

Today at Anglia Ruskin we looked at Swankmajer's Punch & Judy, 1966, 9'55",  as well as Cordell Barker's Runaway,2009, 9'10".
I was thinking about editing and Swankmajer has the magic.  Of course it's also hard to resist a film in which a guinea pig is pampered in turn by two violent puppets.  Cordell Barker's Runaway is a virtuosic piece of animation, it really rattles along, no baggy bits.  We also saw Wisdom Teeth, 2010, 5'55" by Don Hertzfeldt, one long, slightly shrill, crazy joke.
