    It's Such a Beautiful Day


    Since I was a kid, I've always loved Don Hertzfeldt's short film, Rejected ("My spoon is too big..."), and I remember watching this with fascination around when it came out.

I feel like a lot of their "magic" would have been more impressive if they used real slight-of-hand tricks on camera. Some of the CGI magic is too unbelievable to suspend our disbelief for, like turning a rabbit into a hat, or having ribbons fly around telekinetically, or turning your entire body into money. The supposed criminals in this movie are awesome. Is stealing…
