An absurdist comedy short starring David Lynch and his son, Austin, who play two bizarre, high pitched characters with a very unique way with words. They encounter a large, destructive human figure referred to as "The Neighbor Boy".
A series of 5-minute line animations (drawn in the rough style and with the minimalist plots of David Lynch's The Angriest Dog in the World comic strip) featuring an angry and violent Neanderthal, and his family and neighbors.
For whatever reasons, filmmaker David Lynch has mostly been making shorts over the past decade and this one here certainly has his dark style written all over it. Basically we see a small house. We also see a bug. We see the bug slowly walk up to the house, walk over it and then fall off. That's basically everything that happens in this four minute short but if you're a fan of Lynch then you're probably going to enjoy the madness that is here. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking here but I enjoyed the dark nature of the film and the fact that you keep waiting for something "more" to happen and it actually never does. I'm sure many people would view this and ask what the point was but I think fans of Lynch are going to enjoy anything he's done and the people who will be most entertained by this are his fans and especially those who enjoyed his earliest short films.
