Mike Wood’s review published on Letterboxd:
Absolutely remarkable. Joyously inconceivable. One of the most unique and kinetic theatrical experiences I’ve ever had.
Take equal parts of David Gordon Green’s introspective and Malick-y debut feature “George Washington”, and the thematic bombast of “Neon Genesis Evangelion” and other high-concept lore-heavy anime of its era. Blend on high for 3+ hours. Serve and enjoy. You’ve just swallowed and permanently made Terry Chiu’s “Open Doom Crescendo” a part of your DNA forever, and are irrevocably, transcendentally bettered for it.
