593. The Cat Came Back – Cordell Barker

sundaenewyork

SUMMARY: A man who briefly adopts a destructive cat goes to greater and greater lengths to rid himself of the pest.

WHY IT’S HERE: Cordell Barker’s wacky and grotesque ‘The Cat Came Back’, is a wonderful National Film Board of Canada short in which an increasingly crazed old man is haunted by a yellow cat that he can’t seem to get rid of. Wildly energetic, gut-bustingly funny, indelibly weird and just a tad sick, ‘The Cat Came Back’ is an unforgettable experience with an infuriatingly catchy theme song.
