PAPERMAN

An Oscar nominated short, available legally. Who’d a’thunk?

This is the kind of animation that starts some people thinking, “What do we need writers for?” because there’s no real dialog.

But it took a writer to come up with the story, beat by beat, physically and emotionally moving moment by moment. So hat’s off to writers Clio Chiang and Kendelle Hoyer.

And, yeah, director John Kahrs did a pretty damn fine job here too.
