Fun Experimental Film
16 May 2014 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Norman McLaren-style stop-motion effects of people jumping in the air, a vampire killing himself by throwing a knife and patiently laying on the grass waiting for it to strike, a hyperactive camera unable to show a cinematography effect-less shot for more than a single second, an intense western duel featuring a cowboy playing a short string instrument solo before dying, a whole lot of meta-jokes, shots of newspaper cutouts that I suppose were put there to signify chapters, and a whole bunch of other enjoyable experimental techniques make this movie hella fun.

Obayashi's most famous movie, Hausu, is notable for its child-like atmosphere and bizarre special effects, Emotion being similar in style. One of my favorite moments in this movie is when a young girl's father touches her nose, only for us to find out that he actually touched a black&white photo of her, with circular water disturbances coming out of her nose when he touched it. By the way, it's hard to figure out this movie's plot while watching it, or maybe I didn't because the version I saw didn't have subtitles on during the parts with short narrations in Japanese.
