    I would love to sit down and chat with the author for a bit. It seems there are sane people out there after all.

    What the short film is showing is that ingnorance, truly IS bliss. People go around with only the end thought of reproduction, or the means to that end, on their minds. If you arent part of today`s culture, and try to buck it at any chance, all you do is hurt yourself. The only way to keep from being pulled under in the single-minded, greed-ridden world we have today, is to blend in. Touche` to those that can stand aprt and take the route of the martyr for hopes that someone else may stir from the slumber that they have induced upon themselves. Touche`.

    So... anyone who tries to use any form of startling imagery or other means in order to directly or abstractly convey a critique of society and / or human nature is a "twisted F**K"? It’s the very thing that artists, film makers, poets, and musicians have been doing for ages. This piece may not be incredibly deep or of the highest quality but it is no more “twisted” than Picasso’s “Guernica” or Fernando Meirelles` "City of God".

    Philistines...

    thats so..so...waaaaa|-(
    really great for helping u 2 find reasons to live.
    well at least it reminded me how horrible this world has become.
    culture has turned into "conform or die" (or at least be shunned by society never to `live` again)
    What is happening to this world???This horid physcopathic world.
    but the thing is...he would died neway - as soon as the muscles in his face started to involentarily droop they would have pressed the button - i suppose that`s saying that we are at the mercy of others (the confurmists, society in gerneral, the goverment)and nomatter wat u do they`re guna do wat they want to u neway.

    personally, i think the filmmaker was full of crap. when you want to make a point through literature, film, art-whatever, you need to go to that point like a laser- with all focus directed on that one point. everything you have, no matter how complex, needs to support that idea or the plot. any superflous information or ideas pull the viewer away. it would be like george orwell writing three chapters of how napoleon didn`t like the food that he was served on animal farm...it would pull the reader from understanding what was really happening with the "government" of the farm. if the creator did mean this to have anything to do with conforming to society, i didn`t take him to be very serious about sticking to that idea. to me, he was just trying to be lewd by making the image dark and using wanton subject matter as filler. 1 out of 4.

    I would love to sit down and chat with the author for a bit. It seems there are sane people out there after all.
    What the short film is showing is that ingnorance, truly IS bliss. People go around with only the end thought of reproduction, or the means to that end, on their minds. If you arent part of today`s culture, and try to buck it at any chance, all you do is hurt yourself. The only way to keep from being pulled under in the single-minded, greed-ridden world we have today, is to blend in. Touche` to those that can stand aprt and take the route of the martyr for hopes that someone else may stir from the slumber that they have induced upon themselves. Touche`.

    I completely agree. I also liked the clip.

    Nothing like the promise of pain to make you feel HAPPY!

    "What the short film is showing is that ingnorance, truly IS bliss. People go around with only the end thought of reproduction, or the means to that end, on their minds. If you arent part of today`s culture, and try to buck it at any chance, all you do is hurt yourself. The only way to keep from being pulled under in the single-minded, greed-ridden world we have today, is to blend in. Touche` to those that can stand aprt and take the route of the martyr for hopes that someone else may stir from the slumber that they have induced upon themselves. Touche`."

    TOUCHE`! uh, thanks for your, uh, moving little, uh, speech there. Everyone claims to be a noncomformist, but by claiming to be one, isn`t that conforming?

    That is so scary!!! Especially how the robots were smiling and started to frown when the guy actually smiled. The smiled again when he frowned again.
    I wish the guy just smiled in the beginning! >_< *chops all the robot`s head ofF*

    " uh, thanks for your, uh, moving little, uh, speech there. Everyone claims to be a noncomformist, but by claiming to be one, isn`t that conforming?"

    But by telling the nonconformist that he is conforming by calling himself a nonconformist, aren`t you conforming to the idea that noncomformists are all comformists?

    WE`RE ALL JUST PEOPLE!!

    This was highly disturbing imagery, but I really liked the person who made that essay on the first page. When watching this, I didn`t even think of any higher meaning, I was too distracted by the thought of large spikes going through my various body parts.

    All I saw in it was a guy who would do what he thought was right (not smiling unless happy) even when faced with so much pain. By the time he started to give in, he was already dying. I didn`t see anything special about the sexuality in the ending, other than that it was a way to release the tension of the rest of it. ^^

    I agree with ship yard dude. The animator would be nice to have a talk with. The animator imbued the force that tells and expects of you and the beings who misapprehend the emotions and/or experiances of another. But what really just ruined the whole animation was the "great" ending. I mean c`mon, bj? If I were him/her, I would consider that a major faux pas. Interesting graphics, i may include.
