This is truly a worthy sequel. A brilliant re-imagining with increased budget and, yes, something approaching a story. But don't be surprised if you lose the plot yourself, just sit back and be amazed by this work of live manga brilliance. Be perversely moved too, as I was, by the family story at the heart of the work. The effects are unique and uniquely unreal, as they were in the original. This is one filmaker's nightmares rendered real. These two films, along with Lynch's Eraserhead, are the real deal. The cutting is fast so as to cause many (already extreme) shots to register on the subconscious more than the seeing eye. It will haunt you. Very highly recommended indeed.
