ATOMIC RATING | 4 |
Pokey Pokey is a defiant animated short film that delivers a message. The short depicts how we must protect our children form a “filthy crime ridden dump,” otherwise knows as society. It can be analyzed from different view points, and that is what makes Pokey Pokey great, it gets the viewer thinking. In addition to the deep seeded message and critical thinking, the animation is remarkable and reminds me of the real action cartoon movie Cool World with a bold, colorful and dramatic style that really stands out. Its cool and obnoxious style delivers a pop art aesthetic with a message that needs to be heard. See trailer here.
