Love, Death + Robots: spoofing the human experience

An experimental project by Netflix done right? The anthology series Love, Death+ Robots surely lives up to its splendour. Visually dazzling animation equipped with thought-provoking storylines, spanning genres from horror, science fiction, and even satire, Love death + Robots is a rare showcase of sheer passion through which creators express themselves using their chosen art form without holding back.

The latest instalment of Love, Death +Robots aired on May 20nd, re-igniting the mania surrounding the show. Originally a brainchild of acclaimed director Tim Miller, the anthology series draws the audience through its brilliant storytelling, wry humour, and state-of-the-art animation, where the passion flows forth, but not without purpose. Some of this season’s highlights include episodes with stop-motion animation (Night of Mini Death), the themes of imperialism and the exploitation of the earth (Jibaro), and David Fincher’s first foray into animation (Bad Traveling).

The show characteristically packs a punch yet again about truths humans are petrified to confront. In a show like Love, Death + Robots, an artist’s vision can soar since they can easily touch on sensitive subjects thanks to the usage of CGI, which would have been particularly gory if individuals were involved. Each episode hammers the notion that the producers value their self-expression over external validation, inspiring a welcome change among other creatives.
