Strange ... and beautiful!
25 June 2012 | by laballaticianSee all my reviews

I'm not sure what I just watched.

I'm not sure I'm supposed to know.

What I do know is that Heart String Marionette is a beautiful film - both visually and thematically. I don't want to get into the plot of the movie, because it will just confuse you. Just know that it's ... strange.

Very strange. And epic. And hilarious. And mind blowing.

In fact, the movie will blow your mind, pick up the pieces of brain matter spread across your TV screen ( or computer monitor, or iPad, or whatever method you choose to watch --- just be sure to watch), rearrange them in a different order and the proceed to blow them again.

This movie was introduced to me by a friend. I've never been big on animated films, and I was unfamiliar with m dot strange, but consider me a new fan.

I'll definitely be checking out his other work, and anyone on the fence should check out Heart String Marionette.

Just be warned: it's very STRANGE.
