Minkyu Lee‘s Adam and Dog is nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Short, and after watching it you’ll know why. It’s inventive, gorgeously animated, and heart-breaking and heart-mending both at the same time. (I get emotional when there are dogs in movies… don’t look at me. It’s just raining on my face.) Fair warning, there is some nudity (non-sexual in nature) because it’s Adam and Eve sans the oft-pictured fig leaf. It’s not a big deal at all, but I’m just covering my butt like Adam’s butt and genitals are not covered in this movie. So there ya go. Watch it. It’s excellent.
