Mark Whiting displays his genius in this beautiful snapshot of the seemingly random yet exquisitely balanced universe. He weaves a masterful tale of several characters whose lives become elaborately interwoven by happenstance and comical fate, and then provides a most pleasing resolution that resets our faith in the cosmos. Though only 16 minutes in length, you come away feeling as satiated as you would from a full-length movie. It is apparent that Mark is as comfortable behind the camera as he is at the animation desk. We even get hints of his animation background in the lovely segue with the firefly. Apple Jack is most worthy of 10 stars out of 10! Excellent!!!
