Feast (2014) - 9 stars out of 10

Feast (2014) - 9 stars out of 10

“Feast” is a perfectly executed concept.  Over the course of 6 minutes, you go from wondering how they could make an entire short out of these vignettes to being amazed at this new perspective of a love story.  The entire thing revolves around Winston, an adorably animated Boston Terrier, and the human food that makes its way into his life.   Each scene lasts a matter of seconds but tells an important story as, in the background of Winston eating, his master falls in love.  It seems like the short might become repetitive but it actually creates a unique progression full of comedy and emotion.  The animation is awesome with its line-free blocks of color that give it a very distinctive appearance.  I can definitely see “Feast” winning the Oscar for Best Animated Short this year – the concept is fresh and I could watch this one over and over again
