Dead But Not Buried

Phil Mulloy's new movie 'Dead But Not Buried' just won the Best Animated Feature Film Award at the 2011 Ottawa International Animation Festival.

This marks the second consecutive win for the British director at Ottawa. He won last year for 'Goodbye Mister Christie', the prequel to 'Dead But Not Buried'. Audience response to the win was mixed, with groans amidst the applause. Post festival reviews of the film haven't been full of praise either. I'm a huge fan of Mulloy's shorts, especially 'Sex Life Of A Chair', so I hold out hope that his newest feature lives up to the quality of these earlier works.
