Why Watch? Because Guest Week is coming to a close and it’s time to bring out the big guns. As promised, it’s been a week of animated bliss — an overcompensation of sorts for all the live-action stuff programmed by this column’s rightful author.
Not to jump the shark and go commercial all of the sudden, but a week of animated shorts isn’t complete without a little something from the brilliant minds at Pixar. In their library, the Emeryville Einsteins have plenty of great short films. Geri’s Game, For the Birds, Knick Knack and a number of others. But a personal favorite among those with a love for French style and theatrical characters is One Man Band, the story of two street performers, one little girl and a very important financial decision. It’s good for a long, sweet laugh.
What will it cost? Four minutes and thirty four seconds of your fine Friday.
