Mostly self-indulgent grant- funded "art" shorts.
But a half dozen are unique and extraordinary !!

Fast-forward and search them out,.. its totally worth the effort !

"Animation Express" is a collection of creative and fluid animated short films created by French Canadians, which are also affiliated with the National Film Board of Canada. Each and every one of the animated short films differ from each other with their unique styles of art and story-telling.

My thoughts were that all of these animations were very unique. I loved how each and every short film in this collection was diverse from each other. A same is that these animations are not as well-known as they should be, because they could be a potential "step-up" for the reputation of western (especially Canadian) animation; what I mean by that is that these animated short films would be a slap across the face towards people who believe that animation is only for children. A lot of these animated shorts were surprisingly dark, yet there were also some that could appeal to anyone. A lot of them also had very interesting storylines and a lot of them were highly surreal.

Art for art's sake!??_____ Out of these 26 animated shorts presented here by the National Film Board of Canada, I found that only about 5 of them were at all worthwhile entertainment._____ A majority of these shorts were extremely dull and uninspired, to say the least._____ And I don't know what most of these individual film-makers were thinking about when they produced their little offerings, but it sure seems to me that they were only out to entertain just a few selected people (mainly themselves and their friends). It's the only thing that makes any sense to me. Because, from my perspective, these shorts made no sense. They were, literally, pointless._____ I wonder if any of these film-makers came from the Vancouver Film School?

Rating this low because it scared my boys that are 10,8. They thought the animation was cool but one of the features showed a character being cut into and a heart being pulled out.
