Bizarre, experimental early work by Jim Henson, who’d later soar to incredible heights with his muppet creations. This short film demonstrates his creative brilliance and silly, whimsical sense of humor, but his best was yet to come. With no obvious plot, Time Piece plays with imagery and sound effects to achieve a moderately successful meditation on the passage of time. Henson’s work received an Oscar nomination. You can also see Frank Oz, A.K.A Miss Piggy and Yoda, playing a bartender.
