Eye For Film >> Movies >> Glitch (2006) Film Review
Reviewed by: Andrew Robertson
From its stunning title sequence Glitch grabs the attention. It is drawn in crisp, clear lines, a sophisticated stylisation that lies somewhere between Jamie Hewlett's recent work and the Mr Bean Cartoon. That's not to do it a disservice, but to provide an immediate reference.
Its protagonist finds himself noticing that things around him are starting to look a little off. Things progress, and suddenly we're confronted with a wide variety of things that are not normal, including a little robot dog with an even smaller robot riding it. Its ending is ambiguous, and one can't help but suspect a nod towards the work of Philip K Dick or George Orwell.
This is slickly professional, and gorgeous, but it's easy to wonder what could have been made of a more challenging script.Reviewed on: 19 Aug 2007
