If you're not a fan of dream sequences, this ain't your movie

Extremely sincere movie showing the reality of war's aftermath for paralyzed soldiers.. beautifully shot and directed and it does not shy away from harsh truths, which I thought was a great achievement for a film from 1950

This is a great black-cast horror comedy! I loved the friendship between the two leads, features a great villain, and definitely elevates itself past b-movie status with a wild script. It's a shame this is the only film James Bond III got to direct

This felt a lot like a more cartoonish Lina Wertmüller movie. I loved it!

The animation looks amazing in places, and completely wooden in others.. but outside of that I see the critical backlash as being overly reactionary (and maybe I enjoyed this movie more as a reaction to that..). There's a lot of fun and cute moments, and, in my opinion, it's an original take on the Ghibli "witch girl" movie.

I reccomend watching in Japanese, the dubbing was more distracting than in your typical 2d anime

On date of checking (2/13/21), there are two versions of this on ICM- both with 45 checks, one with two favorites, the other with two dislikes. While I'm not going to favorite it to affect the ratio, I really enjoyed this. Going in knowing nothing helps. Just a nice little indie blumhouse movie, far better produced than I anticipated.

I was ready to be underwhelmed by this one but I loved it. Like a Seijun Suzuki and John Woo collaboration.. the humor and insane action made me completely forgive the absence of plot

This movie is so adorable, and SO stylish for being from the 50's.. definitely had new wave vibes. My young daughter was entranced too

A pretty fun and kinda dumb fantasy noir with some questionable morality. Definitely enjoyed the commitment to the premise and a lot of practical effects. Worth watching if you want some escapism

Becomes slightly incoherent by the end, but full of good moments. Most of the series is on kanopy
