A man makes a choice with his cyst, while a woman makes another choice.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Emotional response

Sal1981, my friend, that is exactly what the artistic value of this movie is. I'm sure a lot of people are reading messages into this. I can interpret some myself, but I won't. However, there is no message. It was clearly designed to elicit emotional response. It is a stimulation piece. Its sole purpose is to do exactly that, and it does it well. For that, I give it a high score in style.

While you are intelligent enough to realize that the people interpreting messages are probably wrong, you missed the biggest part of its profundity: that it has no messaeg, no meaning, and that it elicits the responses. The art is in the reaction.

Graphics is the only problem. Jeremy, you are consistently missing the mark on creating good graphics. That you are able to still make brilliance from these mediocre visuals is, however, astounding.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Emotional response oriented

Anyone who thinks this has some profundity is fooled by the ambiguity and draws, at best, an assumption of its plot and/or intended message. Well, I got news for you. There is no message or plot. It's simply stringing together concepts that will be perceived as "gory", "abortion", "self-mutilation" and so on. That some think there's some link between the cyst on the man's arm and the fetus are again fooled by the ambiguity.

I'm sure the author had some idea what it should convey, but it was lost in the production process.

I give it a 7. A good judgment, IMO. But only for its ability to poke at the remaining emotional response left in people that hasn't been desensitized ... yet.

Your BEST!

Even better than "Coffee Break". I fucking LOVE NIN so that just made this even better for me. It really made me cringe when he was sawing through that thing. AMAZING WORK DUDE! I don't know what's up with all the "Dark Animation" bashers I've seen today. Great job dude.

Gross, whats your problem?

There was a baby growing in a guys cyst, why? There's no meaning that I could find, and if there is, did you have to make it so gross?

I don't want to be mean to the author, but your weird, in a bad way. That's not good. For those of you who like this stuff, I think your sick in the head.

By the way, I think salad fingers sucks too.
