I love these Chris Ware shorts. Cameraman was one of the first films we reviewed for this site, and this short was Ware’s addition for the second season of the “This American Life”. Following the format of the show, Ware animates an audio recording of someone telling a story. This time its a couple discussing Jackie O and the bizarre nature of memory.  It’s short, funny, and perfect in most every way.
