Monday Movies: Archaic Blues

As an easy way to create content and since I am all about the LAZY, let us mutually decide that on Mondays I will post up a really good film from the YoungCuts Film Festival.

I really love Archaic Blues because it is short and brevity is the soul of wit and all. I also love the juxtaposition between the computer animation, the subject: an abandoned Greek statue forgotten in a dusty museum and bemoaning its fate and the way that the statue chooses to lament its misfortune: through a very 20th Century idiom, Chicago styles Blues.

This film by the way was done well before
The Ben Stiller comedy about statues coming to life in a museum.
