Such a simple idea.  Such a tremendous hoot, executed to perfection. Whether it's something as simple as changing a single word, or as involved as adding an unspoken thought, the dialogue and its accompanying text complement each other with hilarious effect.  If this playful text-fest pops up at a film festival near you, I highly suggest checking it out.
Film Threat

Nicely illustrated... a humorous and syntactically"inventive animation.
Resfest

The outstanding 'Telling Lies' hits on the simple but blindingly"effective idea of contrasting the words that people say with what they are actually thinking.  Witty, insightful and very close to the bone.  We never get to see the characters but after four minutes you know an awful lot about them.  A short film that won't leave you feeling short changed.
