In a perfect world, I would definitely read this book to my future children. I mean, there is no better story for bedtime than one titled “The Story of an Accident Victim.” Evidently, in 1989, fear tactics weren’t even invented. This story is so tame, that it almost could pass off as a child’s story book. Come on! Where’s the sirens, flashing lights and gratuitous flash cuts? You can’t make a dramatic spot without flash cuts. I will admit, back in 1989, this spot could have inspired the minds that animated “Waking Life” and “A Scanner Darkly.” I’m sure it also took ages to render.
