Don Hertzfeldt’s newest animated film ME is a 22-minute musical odyssey about trauma, technology, and the retreat of humanity into itself. Indiewire has described it as “soul-shaking” and “a triumph”.

Returning to theaters for the first time since 2012, It’s Such a Beautiful Day has been hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of the best animated films of all time.

Praise for It’s Such a Beutiful Day:
In 2014, Time Out New York ranked It’s Such a Beautiful Day #16 on its list of the “100 Best Animated Movies Ever Made”.

In 2016, The Film Stage’s critics ranked the film #1 on their list of “The 50 Best Animated Films of the 21st Century Thus Far”.

In 2019, The Wrap named It’s Such a Beautiful Day the #1 “Best Animated Film of the 2010s”.
The same year, Vulture’s film critics ranked it #12 on their overall list of the “Best Movies of the Decade”.

In 2021, IGN’s Cinefix placed it #1 on their “Top 10 Animated Films of All Time” list.

It’s Such a Beautiful Day is currently ranked #67 on Letterboxd’s official list of the top 250 highest-rated narrative feature films of all time.

“With his humor, darkness, philosophical yearning, and insistence on drawing every line himself, [Hertzfeldt] may be the only legitimate successor to Charles M. Schulz. Except for all the money and fame, of course.” —J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader
