It's Such a Beautiful Day ★★★★★

Part of jvince's Top 200 Favorite Movies of All Time

What's It About?: Life.

Who's In It?: Bill the stickman.

The Good: Every single second and every single frame is simply perfection. It's Such a Beautiful Day is a one-of-a-kind experience that evokes a spectrum of emotions. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll go, "What in the fuck am I watching?" It's visually mesmerizing, expertly executed, and thematically profound. This is some powerful life-affirming stuff that I'm sure you'll never forget.

The Bad: None.

What Did I Learn?: It's possible to get emotionally attached to a stickman.

The Bottom Line: This is perhaps the most epic 60-minute film you'll ever see. An animated masterpiece, a modern classic, and personally, the best film of the decade so far. Don Hertzfeldt's It's Such a Beautiful Day is surreal existentialism at its finest. Essential viewing.
