Stille Nacht II1991

  • 4.1
A three minute animated choreography with an ethereal pop soundtrack by the remarkable band His Name Is Alive. With a typically eccentric cast of a ragged doll, a white rabbit and a manic ping-pong ball, Stephen and Timothy Quay construct a hypnotic, beguiling and vaguely menacing ballet, something like a music video made by Max Ernst. In beautifully textured black and white, ARE WE STILL MARRIED? is a small work but it is as accomplished and unforgettable as their very best.

Classic Quay Brothers - eccentrically humorous and overlaid with a patina of dread. Always the fear of something in this strange universe that you dread to see, lurking around the corner.

Not the Quay Bros. at their creepiest, perhaps, but a lovely example of their work. Ultimately, it's a music video, which is not to condemn it but to assert that some music videos do, indeed, reach the level of art.

Not sure what say, 1991 looks like 1961.

Everyone should have a friend as loyal as that bunny.

Very much a music video: pretty, conspicuously non-narrative, and, even at only three minutes, repetitive.

I'm not sure it's all that important to know exactly what a film is trying to say or what it means. It is often just a pleasure to see creative, artistic and unique techniques of film making combines with interesting use of musical score. I appreciate not knowing what to expect, and being interested the whole time.

Very much art indeed. Like hitting a thought into ones astro-plane experience to excel deeper part of the brain for creativity. It was a trippy 3 and half minutes but got involved with the whole animation.

Simplistic arrangement yet I am so psychologically played! Animation is really smooth. Reminds me of Jan's Alice.

Great!

Disturbing and mezmerizing. My favorite of the series.

Love the Brothers Quay!
