A Town Called Panic 

Directed by Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar (Zeitgeist)

Based on a Belgi TV series, A Town Called Panic is a stop-motion animated film that manages to pack a lot of crazy into its 72-minute run time. Over the course of the movie, roommates Cowboy, Indian and Horse have a party, rebuild their home, get kidnapped by mad scientists and chase down undersea creatures who keep stealing their walls. It takes a while for the episodic nature of the film to smooth out but once it does A Town Called Panic never lets up, blending kinetic claymation with a fast-moving story. If you miss the Michel Gondry who made The Science of Sleep, this will probably scratch that itch more than The Green Hornet does.
