Short Film of the Day: Rabbit

Why Watch? The use of old Dick and Jane cutouts makes for the basis of a very odd story about greed, death, and getting what you wish for.

This might be the most sinister the childhood pair have every been portrayed, but it works perfectly – blending the familiar imagery with a discordant fantasy story about an idol they cut out of a rabbit who can turn houseflies into things they can sell.

See Dick and Jane Get Greedy.

What Will It Cost? Just 8 minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that?
