Review of Paradise Lost on

Paradise Lost picked as one of “8 Key 60-Second Films That Pack a Punch” at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.

Vince Hemingson’s, “Paradise Lost”

The joke at the center of this stop-motion comedy is so perfectly simple it’s a wonder no one thought of it before. A lush miniature forest of grass and trees on a female body is gruffly mowed away and chopped down by little bulldozers and excavators, their growling motors leaving only dirt in their wake. This playful visual joke is so well executed that it elevates its medium. Hemingson is all for bush and all for the earth, and we’re all for him. Premieres 8/16.

Paradise Lost will wire tonight on the TIFF website at 6PM EST and you can vote for it here:
