“BORROWED TIME” Pixar animators brings an heartwarming tale of a sheriff

Blazing through the canyons at a breakneck pace, the stagecoach tips its rickety wheels up into the air, the horses champing and stomping toward the edge of the cliff, the memory of bloodshed and regret and despair.

That’s what Pixar animators Andrew Coats and Lou Hamou-Lhadj have spent the last five years’ worth of days off producing. We’ve known about it since last year, but now that it’s finally online, “Borrowed Time” surpasses even the highest expectations.

This absolutely stunning short film about shadowed despair and shining forgiveness fits right in line with the Pixar ethos, even if its subject matter may seem slightly darker than the standard short fare playing before Inside Out or Toy Story 3.
