"FOUR STARS (Highest Rating)
The title really says it all: Wonderfully strange and surreal, indeed. This is animation with an adult sensibility,and it
takes the medium to a whole new level. Bizarre, head-popping,delightful, and utterly one-of-a-kind."
- Todd David Schwartz, CBS
"The complete collection of Suzan Pitt's animation is now available on DVD. This is what the package looks like:
If you're looking for a truly unusual animated experience, you simply have to experience Suzan Pitt. There's absolutely nothing
like her films.
Her animation is a visual orgy. The experience of her work is of overwhelming generosity. She strips herself bare and gives
her viewers a look directly into her very soul. She is sensuous, erotic, bold, brilliant, bizarre, adventurous, honest, candid
and consumed with the creative process. Her life is a dedication to her art. Her art is a lucious ice cream cone dripping
with despair, surreality, hope and redemption.
Suzan is remarkable. A purist's purist. Saintly and profane."

"Pitt's carefully measured mix of the absurd and the grotesque permeates this ticker tape celebration of her imagination,
but it is her fascination with the thin line between the pretty (a meticulously rendered rainforest) and the profane (bloody
corpses floating like driftwood) that elevates her work above "adult animation" and into the realm of art. As much as Ralph
Bakshi might disagree, his juvenile movies can't hope to approach the subversive, gorgeous, even poetic heights of Pitt's
The package includes a 27-minute documentary, "Suzan Pitt: Persistence of Vision," that provides the artist's firsthand account
of creating all three works. The intelligent, articulate Pitt recalls the details of her creative process with remarkable
clarity. Informative and engaging."
- DVD VERDICT
"Dark, twisted, tantalizing, and inspiring. There are many words that can describe the art of Suzan Pitt with her different
and skillful style that transfers somewhat difficultly to film, but nevertheless interesting. In this DVD entitled "The Wonderfully
Strange and Surreal Animation of Suzan Pitt" compilation we have three animated short films including Asparagus, Joy Street,
and El Doctor. Each animated film is interesting for its own individuals reasons. Suzan Pitt’s art is simply amazing
that is mostly inspired by many Mexican elements from the dark and eerie side to the brighter hopeful sides of rebirth and

"Pitt’s work is like a dream. Things exist out of proportion, shapes shift, characters emerge and then disappear.
But like any dream, they also exist with a backbone of reality, and in every way celebrate the things that make life such
a mixed bag of joy and sorrow. They are amazing works of art, and for any fan of animation or unique cinematic experiences,
they are not to be missed."
