Pink Swine1963

  • 3.6
One of Lawrence Jordan's earliest animated films, PINK SWINE is an energetic and playful mix of various animation styles. Described as "an anti-art dada collage film," this free-form short presents cut-out images animated across old photos (a style picked up by Terry Gilliam a few years later) and found objects that dance to the beat of the rock-and-roll soundtrack. He produced this short during a summer spent with Joseph Cornell and Jordan edited the film entirely in camera, making the upbeat visual rhythm of this delightful lark even more impressive. - Sean Axmaker

I loved this little animation. The stop motion sequences of unrelated objects is kind of fun and happy. And when you think of it as a precursor to Terry Gilliam's stuff, it makes a lot of sense.

Normally inanimate objects move around the screen in choreographic sync to the strains of a short, catchy Beatles tune. This is worth a four-minute look, mostly because it inspires one to think, look and act creatively. It sustains interest, but isn't a mind-blower.

Going through the work of Jordan as available on Fandor, Pink Swine is his more inspired and imaginative since Trumpit. His sense of humor and creativity comes completely to life in this energetic animation piece.

hard to say what exactly this abstract jumble of images with Beatle's song meant , an ode to love is clear, done by pinky swine! very clear

Very very nice! Really fresh to my eyes. I didn't feel tired after watching this piece. Some pieces that are shorter are way to hard to watch. But this is my kind of animation.

Pretty chill, would have been more interesting if it was longer or had some narrative.

Good images. Fun.

Mostly a series of stop motion sequences of misc. objects.
