Totally mind blowing experience!
13 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say this movie really impressed me, it surpassed my expectations by quite a bit. For those of you who don't know 1001 nights is the first movie in the Animerama trilogy which were the first anime films aimed towards adults. Now I don't know how successful this was in Japan (I've heard both it was a hit and it was a flop) But I know it did poorly in America which is a shame. Oh and this film was made by master of manga Osamu Tezuka

Anyway this is of course this is a twist on the tale of Alladdin. It mixes the story of Alladin with other tails such as Sinbad the Sailor plus the Tower of Babel. Also like I said this movie is aimed at adults and so it has lots of nudity and much of the plot involves sex, of course their is no genitalia shown plus most of the sex scenes are depicted with surrealistic imagery which is quite beautiful. Their is also violence most of which is comical though sometimes you see graphic and bloody war scenes plus much of the main cast is killed off. The thing I like about this movie is how deep and complex it is. At over two hours it's one of the longest anime movies'and it makes good use of it's time. There's a lot of crazy stuff happening throughout the film and it's always interesting. At times it seems like it's just staying away from the plot but in the end everything becomes resolved and you see the reasoning behind everything that happens. It does a really good job of getting it's messages through some moments are quite powerful I think.

In the end I consider this a masterpiece that has sadly been ignored through time. This is a far better film in all aspects than most anything Disney was spoon-feeding children at the time. With lot's of great action, fantastic animation for its time, and a well told storyline Osamu Tezuka has blessed us with a truly magnificent work of art.
