Rabbit ★★★½

The vintage children’s book style of this unusual and highly entertaining short was inspired by several sheets of educational stickers from the 1950s that director Run Wrake found in a thrift store. While the retro imagery might bring to mind the graphic design of artists like Winston Smith and Frank Kozik, this dark morality tale is able to fully explore the sinister motives of Dick and Jane that are only hinted at in the print work of Kozik or Smith. It’s terrific stuff.
