Don Hertzfeldt’s WISDOM TEETH finally makes its way online

Don Hertzfeldt is a sick genius, I really don't know any other way to put it. His short film, REJECTED, made quite the splash back in 2000 and took the film festival circuit by storm, catapulting him into the spotlight. Since then, he has had a steady flow of work, including his crazy animated Pop Tart commercials.

After running its course on the film festival circuit this past year, his most recent short, WISDOM TEETH, has finally hit the web. You can check it out after the break!

I was lucky enough to see WISDOM TEETH at this year's Dallas International Film Festival, and it goes down just as smooth this time. It shows that even now, ten years after REJECTED came out, he still knows how to make a great short film. Hopefully his success with WISDOM TEETH leads him to do shorts more frequently.

What did you guys think of WISDOM TEETH?
