assaulting but amazing piece of art. love/hate
24 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a brilliant combination of different forms of art and digital media.

I, for one, am not at all connected to any genre or sub-culture that might relate to this film. I never play video games, do not like 8-bit music, do not particularly like any kind of animation, and have watched virtually no anime. I actually walked into the movie at Sundance about 10 minutes late and had a hard time getting to my seat because of the visual and audio onslaught coming at me from the screen. I was completely confused for about 3/4 of the movie yet I could not stop watching. The plot was developed almost entirely outside the realm of dialog and I suggest you read about the story before you begin watching.

What I love about this film is that it makes you think. As much as I disliked (pretty much hated) parts of it, I was completely drawn in. It really made me re-evaluate why I watch movies and what I get from them. Sundance was a great forum for this film because it definitely is an INDIE film.

I HIGHLY recommend seeing this film if you want something different than anything you have ever seen. *Give it a chance - it is really something that needs to be watched in its entirety before judgment is made*. Even if you hate the movie, it is still worth watching if you like to expand your perception of what film is. I walked away from this movie with a much greater appreciation for different kinds of art and the amount of work that went into blending all the mediums used.
