The House

I highly recommend The House on Netflix. In general, stop-animation is incredibly engaging -- with a weirdness and authenticity that's impossible to look away from. The House couples this with excellent writing and a creeping dread. This film is an easy watch -- and you won't be checking your phone.

"Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

The Fight Club metaphor is in full swing here. 'The House' has an obvious and universal message that should be revisited by our society: we're all sucked in and driven by unbridled consumerism, and our priorities are backwards. The film is not preachy in the least bit, but it's incredibly thoughtful.

The music is by Gustavo Santaolalla, with the final song being sung by Jarvis Cocker from the British rock band, Pulp.

[This is Hardcore (Pulp) is one of my most treasured albums. Jarvis and Santaolalla teaming up on the same same tune?!?! I'm sold. Take money now.]
