The Street Of Crocodiles review
I found it very difficult to understand and form a story out of 'Street of Crocodiles', I started of by understand that when the puppet was cut free, it was allowed to explore a world of mysteries and adventures. As it progressed, I failed to understand what was happening, and instead started to feel uncomfortable as a result of the 'uncanny' designs throughout. For me, this animation had me more concentrated on how well the environment manages to evoke such feelings. The relationship created between the objects are responsible for creating such a feeling, for example the ubiquitousness of screws throughout the animation, unscrewing themselves, made me feel uneasy. The colour used were also inspiring, as it created such a dingy, underground world. I believe 'The Street of Crocodiles' is an animation I will be revisiting, however, my main goal if anything, is to understand the storytelling used throughout.
