netflixed



Netflix recommended this because of my interest in Miyazaki. Cha and I got about 30 minutes in before we swore at the Blu-Ray player and packaged it back up in its red envelope. The dialogue is artless, the voice-over is painfully wooden, the characterization is random and insipid, and much (not all, to be fair) of the animation is at the level of the original Speed Racer cartoon. Perfect Blue certainly not perfect: fuck this movie.

I really loved Millenium Actress. Win some, lose some!
