Every once in a while I come across a film that I simply cannot sit through. Sometimes it’s because of a technical error, sometimes it’s a creative issue. Whatever the reason, my mind simply will not allow me to watch it. “Idiots and Angels” falls into this category.

Before I begin, I must state that this movie got amazing reviews from both audience members and critics. It’s said to be surreal, challenging and very profound; but I can’t speak toward those claims. I am wholly unqualified to review this film and the main reason for that is because I couldn’t sit through even the first half hour.

I could have lived with the fact that there was no dialog. I actually like animated films, so that shouldn’t have been the problem either. My issue was the style of animation. I couldn’t get past the style and I couldn’t concentrate on the story at all. It was purely an opinion-related issue.

My suggestion is that you watch the trailer. If the lack of dialog and animation style doesn’t turn you off, give it a shot.
