Panique au Village

Whenever I get insomnia, I am reminded how lucky I am to be awake - and how much I absolutely adore the first "Panique Au Village" episode entitled, "The Big Sleep." There are so many components that comprise excellent short filmmaking, from fascinating characters to comic digressions to simple story rhythm. I've always been a fan of artists that find extraordinary in the ordinary and this series about a cowboy, indian and horse living in the Belgian countryside grasps a verve few things do.

I hunted down the DVD of the entire series a few years back, but am delighted that you can watch most of them on youtube. I'll write more in detail about it at a later point, but hopefully this will whet your appetite. Enjoy "Le Grand Sommeil..." and tell me how diabolic the ending is...
