What movie was that...?

Big Bang Big Boom

directed by Blu

Like Banksy, the artist known as Blu is known only by his work, for he has kept his identity hidden from the world like the final resting place of Hoffa’s body. His wall art graces such diverse locales as Guatemala City and Berlin, and his cumulative work is meditative, bizarre and haunting. In Big Bang Big Boom, Blu takes a figurative approach to the history of existence as told through a mind blowing animation sequence spanning millennia and stretching across the canvas of a coastal townscape. The animation itself is minimalistic, as is the soundtrack, but the sheer scope and breadth of Blu’s vision is staggering in comparison to most of the crap you find winning awards every effing year. Blu’s tale is mesmerizing, quiet, and the surprises around every corner will have you throwing your hands up and declaring his genius. In fact, I’m calling it right now: Blu’s Big Bang Big Boom is the frontrunner for best animated short this year. Mark my words, Academy. Don’t drop the ball on this.
