Kudos to Fantasia's directors, Mitch Davis and Marc Lamonte and the amazing programming team. Splendid choices!
This existential absurdist film vaguely references believing in others. Maggie is a fish that narrates the obtuse events concerning a hospital where the x-ray room shows shots of sex and everyone thinks the bodies are themselves.
Everyone has their double in the not-so-nice
This anime feature is rich in action and excellent motion-capture work. It’s an odd story that sends a message of hope for a unified trouble-free
These people have formed a great community, and what better way to connect than to relive the past with a Victorian reference. I have to say that the people are so creative and superb in what they create. They want to live time travel in a most unique way, and they do it colourfully.
Shamed by villagers who are at the employ of the big car manufacturer, Koji is an outcast. In fact, his father committed suicide after becoming bankrupt for his honesty.
She is not aware of this at all. One day a really mean guy shows up at the bank where she works and insinuates aggressively on her. The cops think this might be the guy they’re after. Females become toys for the psychopath to play with, and males are to be discarded. The set up is ironic and confusing for the cops and Kyung-min who is living in terror. The intense climax is like none other. The acting is great.
Now technically improved by novel cinematic magic, this 1981 enchanting pseudo- psychedelic film is based on Hungarian folklore, this award-winning unique animation puts Hungarian mythology into sight with imagination and plot trials. I found it the motifs very repetitive, but scary.
The Fable, as he's called is a trained killer/assassin, and he's put to good use to rescue a friend who helped him once when he was pretending that a gang really was getting the upper hand while beating him up. The Fable finds a way to rescue her but not without hurting a whole lot of people. he is not supposed to kill people though; his boss has told him to lay low for a year.
He's got a tender sweet side; he loves his new bird, and he not only draws his gun, but cartoons too.
This slam-bang action thriller with yakuza melodrama hits the mark when it comes to confusing us, along with the characters in the film. But all the elements are there for high entertainment: a psychopath killer, lots of great super-charged fight scenes and character drama. Osaka's underworld is as tense as a den of vipers.
The animation is charming, despite the quirky focus on water and its romantic role to unite the lovers. This film has its own ironic plot twist.
Lazarus, an old man who carries around a big with a demonic being in it, begins to befriend Mary, but his motive is self-serving. His wife died at childbirth, and his daughter perished in a fire. Mary is a victim of demonism, but the story ends on a throw-in happy event. Soweto-born actor Tshamano Sebe is superb in his role as Lazarus. He carries the film. The sound is most effective in this atmospheric film; the lighting is also a dreamy enhancement to this strange film.
Any emotional outbursts go no further than the flat screen we are yawning at.
The last scene of swirling girl resembles a Greek chorus paying tribute to mothers.
