The best Stop-Motion movies ever

Based on the stories of Israeli writer Etgar Keret, “$9.99” is about several characters living in the same apartment complex who are going through an existential crisis. One character, Dave (Samuel Johnson), orders a book that promises to give him the Meaning of Life for just $9.99. In a hilarious situation, Dave discovers the Meaning of Life halfway through the film; he tries to share it with others, but they keep interrupting him.

The animation here is super clever: A boy named Zack (Jamie Katsamatsas) fumbles for the bag after trying to hide the angel feather he found. Same goes for the character design, especially the skinny homeless man with angel wings (voiced by Geoffrey Rush).

The setting of the film is beautiful, in a mundane way. This Australian film is charmingly ugly but beautiful. For example, Jim (Anthony LaPaglia) washes his hands in blood in the bathroom with a sickly yellow and white checkered pattern on the wall. Later, Zack is silhouetted behind his small bookshelf by the light of his chair-shaped bedside lamp. And let’s not forget that Tanita’s (Leeanna Walsman) apartment decorated with meat pea chairs is actually just her ex-boyfriend who has been boned. (Don’t ask.) Each character has their own unique sticky wallpaper pattern, and in the end, all of their stories weave together into one unsightly tapestry.
