ok, I wanna talk about this little guy right here.
This is Snitter, one of the lead characters from the Plague Dogs, a film that was adapted from another one of Richard Adams books.
the beautiful 2-D animation for this film is perhaps some of the BEST I’ve ever seen in my life. But I’m acutally not here to rag on animation today.
I loved how this film portrayed all the dog’s emotional and psychological journey, but Snitter was the best example. Due to tramatic events in his past where he was accidently somewhat responsible for the death of his ‘Master’ and having a recent brain sugary the poor dog’s grip on reality and memories is greatly distorted. It’s shown so well you really have to see the film to understand but it’s just amazing. Here is the link, the entire film is on youtube please watch it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBxfOvx7QmU
IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR CHILDREN OR LIGHT OF HEART.
“My friend,” said Frith, “have you seen El-ahrairah? For I wish to give him a gift.”
“No, I have not seen him.”
So, Frith said, “Come out, and I will bless you instead.”
“No, I cannot. I am busy. The fox and weasel are coming. If you want to bless me, you will have to bless my bottom. ”
“Very well. Be it so.”
And El-ahrairah’s tail grew shining white, and it flashed like a star, and his back legs grew long and powerful. He tore across the hill faster than any creature in the world.
“All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies. And whenever they catch you, they will kill you…But first, they must catch you…digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warren. Be cunning and full of tricks…and your people will never be destroyed.”
I am night, and I am death. I am the moon too, hovering in the night, granting light where it may spread. I am darkness, who comes to steal away the breath of the dying rabbit. In Lapine they call me Inlé, Inlé of the moon. I will guide you with my crimson eyes and ebony fur to where the truth does lay. I am the night, I am the moon. I am death, and I am true. I am Inlé, rabbit in the guise of the abyss. So when you hear me call, answer me back. Follow me home.
