I didn’t get it. Nope, I just didn’t get it. For a name like “Vitruvius Toybox,” director Dennis Michael Iannuzzi’s experimental short film just feels like a glorified screensaver, and one I really wanted on my desktop.
I won’t completely lash out on “Vitruvius Toybox,” since it presents some fine visuals, but beyond the “Yellow Submarine” surrealism, and ’80s chic deco patterns, there’s really not much to this film beyond random images, a pretty soundtrack playing in conjunction with random images, and a horrific seizure for an audience hoping for something of peculiarity. “Vitruvius Toybox” is not the worst experimental short film I’ve ever seen, it just doesn’t re-invent the wheel.
Now, does this “film” upload onto my computer or does it come with Windows?
