“Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj’s brilliant short film has been racking up accolades on the festival circuit,” dailydot.com reports. “Borrowed Time captures a lonely sheriff as he stares down the barrel of a painful memory from his past.” Stares down the barrel. Geddit? SPOILER ALERT . . .
Borrowed time (click image above to view the the 6:44 short) is based on a negligent discharge. Does that make this animated short anti-gun? I’d say yes, based both on the film itself and the aforementioned accolades. (If you think a pro-gun animated movie would become the darling of the high fallutin’ popcorn-munching set you’re not playing with a full deck.) Still, that’s the first time I’ve seen splatted blood in a Pixar-ish movie. Can’t wait for the Bambi remake.
