76 85% Adelheid (1970) - Jan 14, 2021
"After a rather rough early sequence, this settles into an unusual and effective depiction of the tension between a man and a woman between whom communication is very limited and in the midst of a generally tense and fraught situation. One imagines it would have looked very impressive in the cinema at the time and a high-definition restoration is indicated."
60 60% Notes on Monstropedia (2017) - Jan 14, 2021
"A good idea imaginatively conveyed: one of Yamamura's most successful animations."
45 32% Satie's Parade (2016) - Jan 14, 2021
"While the ballet was no doubt a remarkable collaboration, and this animation tries to convey a sense of it while also reflecting on Satie and his world, it still feels too disconnected, and the perspectiveless two-dimensionality of the representation may be intended as a kind of surrealism but is not particularly engaging either."
35 18% Man and Whale (2007) - Jan 14, 2021
"As far as commercials for whales go, I guess it's fine."
45 32% A Child's Metaphysics (2007) - Jan 14, 2021
"Suggestive and abstract."
60 60% Toshi wo totta wani (2005) - Jan 13, 2021
"An unusual and suggestive tale rendered in ink in a manner that really suits the twist in the narrative that comes at the end."
45 32% Pieces (2003) - Jan 13, 2021
"Just an exercise, I guess, but kind of interesting to watch."
50 41% Atama-yama (2002) - Jan 13, 2021
"Responsibility as a question of the relationship between microcosms and macrocosms, but it does seem to equate miserliness and greed, which confuses the message somewhat."
40 25% Your Choice! (2000) - Jan 13, 2021
"Kinda cute but didn't get much out of it really. About the necessity of dealing well with the tyranny of choice, I guess."
45 32% Bavel's Book (1996) - Jan 11, 2021
"Some pretty painterly animation in a tale that seems intended to encourage children to discover reading."
