you know I dreamed about you

Set to The National's iconic and beautiful tune, Slow Show, which gets me every single time, "Out of a Forest" is an amazing bit of stop motion loveliness. Sort of a coming-of-age tragedy that explores wonderment and fear. And the 'world in a world' twist is a beaut bookend.
Reminds me of being fourteen, losing my way on the pitch dark path to the home brew fort the boys had made to smoke pot in, and stopping to stare up at moon, afraid but thrillingly alive with expectation.
