Pretty neat, although definitely not subtle.  When you start with a Jung quote though, you get my attention, haha.

The music was decent, but failed to develop in my opinion.  Basically was Burial's Untrue without the dimentionality he can do.  Then again, that album is probably easily one of the most influential of this millennium, so...

I found it to be a very uplifting piece - going to have a great day now.

I'm watching it again - there's a Pink Floyd feel to this, a throw back to 70's dystopian art.

I think I've been meaning to watch this since you posted it, lol.

And so, I have watched!

The art and animation is great, but I do agree it's way too on the nose, and kinda made the middle drag a bit. It also feels like it's not quite as smart as it seems to think it is, in general. Nonetheless the imagery was still strong enough to be compelling and the music did its job. The opening and the last few minutes were my favorite part.
