Heaven and Earth Magic (1962)

Directed by Harry Smith
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Cut-out animated photographs of objects and people, arranged and re-arranged in endless possibilities. Dental instruments pop up with regularity, as do cats, dogs, a watermelon, a skeleton, an umbrella, well, you get the idea. Watching all of the various combinations becomes a bit hypnotic after awhile, but with no plot, no soundtrack (only sound effects as random as the objects) and no characters with which to gain some kind of grounding, it's simply a collection of random objects.
