Tacky, Sticky & Glutinous
Created by David Mangault, a student at Paris' EMCA animation school, Tacky, Sticky & Glutinous is an abstract, yet beautifully animated short about a man lost between his dreams and his frustrations, ultimately becoming the witness of his rapidly declining sanity. The short nearly comes off as a trip into someone's subconcious with it's raw imagery and abstracted, stream of consciousness dialogue.
If you're into this style of narrative, I'd highly recommend checking out the works of David O' Reilly, who popularized these more surreal narratives with shorts like The External World, which also offered a similarly personal set of visuals from the perspective of the creator.
