Cryptozoo ★★★½

Not sure that the social commentary or characters all land by the end, but it's such a visually rich and enthralling journey that it's difficult not to get swept up in the world building. There's a surrealist, off kilter energy to this that is very much the result of a singular creative vision, and I very much respect Shaw's ambition in bringing that to life. Stunning animation and overall one of the more unique things to come out of Sundance this year, even if it's narratively flawed.
