You find yourself watching and you just can't stop!!
12 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the weirdest DVD extras I have ever seen. Apparently Sarah Vowell is the voice of Violet from the Incredibles and in this short film, she appears to be given a camera crew and just talks and talks and talks--often about rather inane and odd things. Some of it is truly bizarre and some if very funny and insightful. You really aren't sure how much of this is the real Sarah and how much might be a put-on--sort of like performance art. I did some checking and found that indeed she did write the book about presidential assassinations and historical plaques--but she's also been writing for NPR for some time--so will the real Sarah Vowell please stand up?! Despite having a free-flowing stream of consciousness style, the film appears to be extremely well-constructed and enjoyable. While not for every taste, for those who like the quirky and unique, watch this film!!
