This film is definitely one of the most surreal, anti-literal films I've ever seen. It offers a lot of "brain-food" in the way of cinema history and Mamoru Oshii's opinions about movies in general. The film features a cast of characters (some of which are based on actual people who worked on the film)... which are comically insane exaggerations with legs.
It takes a while to get used to Mamoru Oshii's fantastical style, but you are soon sucked into a world where it doesn't surprise you all *that* much that... well, I don't want to spoil it.
I would definitely recommend this movie to film students, fans of anime, fans of film, fans of Japanese culture, fans of silent movies, fans of noir, fans of suspense, fans of fantasy... Well, let's just say there's something for just about everybody.
