Trippy murder mystery about the nature of reality
23 September 2006 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of director Oshii's animated works but for the most part I'm left scratching my head by his live action works.For the most part I find his live action films interesting doodles that don't add up to very much. Then again he surprised me with Talking Head, a very existential and surreal look at not only film making but also the notions of reality.

The plot has to do with a producer of an upcoming animated movie bringing in hired gun director to take over for the previous director who is long gone taking the script and anything remotely connected to the movie with him. Faced with having to make a film in two months the director sets about to work only to find that some one or something is killing off his crew. However the plot isn't really the point as the film spins off in various directions as it pulls apart our notions of reality, movies, stories, and numerous other subjects. Its feast for your mind assuming you like ideas over action.

Not for all tastes, this is head-trip film and if you don't like that sort of thing look elsewhere. Its very much like Heart of Darkness in an anime studio.

I really liked this film a great deal. Its not perfect, bouncing around too much for my tastes but it scores high in my book simply because it dares to be about ideas.
