Like Wes Anderson, Seth possesses a calligraphic sense of beauty, as well as one dampened like an abandoned piece of wood. But Seth and his comics, which, hailing from Canada, gave the term “nostalgia” a less Andersonian and more powerful meaning in its questions (and visual simplicity) acquire a new layer in this animated-documentary hybrid. A first person account of the author, animations that capture that which makes his style exceptional, and postcards of his day-to-day (Andersonian, in this case) allow to understand that all the art that comes from this elegant man will be something unique. Seth’s Dominion listens to and exposes Seth’s ideas on art, on his art, and on memory: the comic book artist and creator of the town-model Dominion is not a melancholy fundamentalist. His life and craft are all about building pasts wherever and however he can, in order to discover the palpable perfection of that which no one remembered. JMD
