Review of “Canon” (1964)

Moving picture, 10 minutes

Norman McLaren (director), Grant Munro (director).

Alphabetic blocks dance synchronously on a checkered board with synthesizer music, happy cartoon figures float and glide around one another to piano accompaniment, and live-action humans foreshadow Rybczynski’s “Tango” (1981).

A collection of three shorts. Blissful simplicity with a theme.
