    My Own Private Idaho

    ★★★★

    NOT A REVIEW

    Perfectly resumed in its intro ― “wherever, whatever, have a nice day” ― this film is like two different ones and three different stories weaved into a single product, thanks to the "magical" narcolepsy of its hero, here a narrative technique incarnated. It also transcribes well to the audience the way the hero goes through his life because of it.

    Score: 8 (+1)
    Enjoyment: 4/5…

    ★★★

    NOT A REVIEW

    -:
    * An uninteresting story at best,
    * with no theme or character to make up for it,
    * willingly too "Ghibli-esque".
    * the clear nods to Laputa with the beginning and the end.

    +:
    * cats (two for the price of one theater ticket)
    * animation,
    * CGI integration,
    * the music ! (as simple and repetitive as the main theme was, I rapidly got more interested in the BGM than anything else in the theater…
