I’m so glad you asked! It’s Such a Beautiful Day, written and directed by Don Hertzfeldt, released in 2012 and is one of his acclaimed animations. It follows a day in the life of Bill, an every-man, who is living with an unspecified mental condition, that is increasingly deteriorating. One of its awards included Best Animation Feature Film at the Atlanta Film Festival.
The film has been praised for its thoughtful approach to mental illness and its deep exploration of mortality, as well as its expressive hand-drawn animation. It draws comparisons to Richard Linklater’s “Slacker” for its stream of consciousness narrative style, as well as its use of fragmented time-scale.
The film was praised for its poignant approach to its subject matter, as well as its thoughtful use of silence, music, and animation to create a unique emotional atmosphere. It is a highly recommended watch and will leave viewers feeling a little more aware of life and its complexities after watching.
