Was just reminded on Twitter (via the always reliable Tim Maughan) about this eyeball raping juggernaut, and just had to chime in on my love for the works of Takeshi Koike & Katsuhito Ishii. Fluid, colorful, and near PCP levels of full-motion anime-fu. Those unfamiliar with these names may remember them upon my mentioning of The Animatrix. World Record? Or how about the live action Shark Skin Man & Peach Hip Girl(1998)? Ring any bells now?
Oh yeah, this premiered last August at the Locarno International Film Festival and apparently rocked the house, so seriously...this is something worth looking forward to. And best of all... it's a complete original. Finally, a peek at something altogether new. So suit-up, and break out your best insane goggles because this looks like it's going to be a unique brain-buster of a ride.
