True Story (2015)
Enjoyable, But Could Have Been So Much Better
True Story is based on the book which depicts true events revolving in the aftermath of four shocking murders, and when the movie came out I thought that this would be a very interesting watch...
I was wrong.
True Story has all the necessary ingredients of a good true crime movie. Great performances from Jonah Hill, James Franco and Felicity Jones are there, the stylish directing, well-written lines and a very, very interesting story is there. However, the pay-off ultimately falls flat, and we never get to experience the full weight of the climax. The build-up is really, really good, however, the ending is not as impactful as one would expect it to be.
A good, thought-provoking movie, but instead you'll keep on thinking how good it could have been.
This animation was made in 1977 and if I didn't know that,I would have easily thought that this was made in a computer,probably after 1995.The technique used is far ahead from it's time,and the meaning this short holds is great.The idea is completely original,and very clever.I suggest you to watch this short,you won't be disappointed.

Also,the final scene left me speechless.The moment where the tank,the creation that caused so much destruction,kills it's creator and after that scene,if you didn't watch the credits,I highly suggest that you do.At the very end of the credits,there is a scene that holds so much meaning.
