Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion ★★★½

Watching this without knowing a thing about the manga or the 24 TV episodes that preceded this made it very hard for me to get my bearings. But even in sink or swim mode, this is a pretty impressive imaginative work, it's...

Q: What would you get if a manga-fanatic incel thirteen year old channeled his romantic traumas and feelings of inadequacy into an insanely-detailed compensation fantasy -- as complete a universe as the one outlined in William Blake's Major Prophecy poems -- full of Adam Eve and Lilith machines capable of destroying galaxies and a religious cult preparing humanity for the planetary cataclysm to come?

A: This.
