Everything Will Be OK

Sundance 2013 News and Reviews

We’re exploring Sundance’s past all week, so we’ve got the usual batch of stellar short films with a Sundance twist. It’s like being there without the snow boots or Harvey Weinstein ruining screenings on his cell phone. Why Watch? If you’re unfamiliar with the soaring brilliance of Don Hertzfeldt‘s work, or if you’re a fan looking for even the flimsiest of reasons to luxuriate in it, take the time out to enjoy the awkward observations that spring forth from his stickman hero Bill (who hit Sundance in 2007). Wry and often so honest it’s uncomfortable, the idiosyncrasatic and the strangely relatable blend together to make something that will make you laugh so hard you’ll rethink your entire life plan. Truly, we are all Bill. What will it cost? Only 17 minutes. Skip Work. Watch More Short Films.

Why Watch? Because Don Hertzfeldt is a genius. For those who haven’t been indoctrinated into his mad world, this short is a great introduction. For those that have, here’s just another excuse to watch it again. Hertzfeldt has an uncanny ability to make his stick figure drawings say more about our lives than the poets of the world can ever dream of doing. Funny, existential, meaty – this short (like all his others) delivers the humor and intense meaning of everyday life. Bill walks through his life experiencing the unexpected, wondering about wondering, and pretending not to notice that everything around him is changing while grabbing the produce from the back of the stack. What Will It Cost? Just 17 minutes of your time. Check out Everything Will Be OK for yourself:
