A Look at Overcoming Psychological Cliches
23 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This animated short is quite wonderful. They use animals as patients in a psychologist's group session The pig has an eating problem, the praying mantis, dating issues, and so on. The pacing is fine and dull until a gorilla with anger issues shows up and throws the place into chaos. It is skillfully crafted and reaches a point where the usual is cast aside to move one to reality. However, our dog psychiatrist never really gets the message.
