Dizzying and Brilliant
2 March 2018 | by lfogginiSee all my reviews

I have absolutely zero idea what was going on in this short film but it is absolutely gorgeous and shows a very well thought out and dizzyingly detailed world that adheres to some wild logic that we as the audience are not privy to. The music is great, the ending theme done by Crystal Kay. Would highly recommend to fans of great fantasy and followers of the unclassifiable genius of Masaaki Yuasa and Koji Morimoto.
