    Going to annoyingly echo everyone who told me to watch this without knowing anything about it and thus provide zero useful information. If the idea of celebrating the amateur-hour joy of low-budget filmmaking appeals to you literally at all, just watch the damn thing. It's really short and really good.

    The results here feel deeply inconclusive. Spielberg is a born director of musicals, for sure, but not necessarily of this musical.

    It fucking sucks that this short's script makes so many bad decisions in just 13 minutes, because the visuals are just about one-of-a-kind. They are strong enough, all by themselves, to support the entire thing as a pure audiovisual sensory experience. That the scenario not only fails to enrich those visuals and add additional meaning, but actively degrades them by shackling them to the most boring possible kind of Edgy Cartoon boilerplate is an absolute tragedy.
