    I liked it, but it is a difficult watch. very confusing to watch as a foreigner because it feels like I'm missing a lot of information that I probably would know if I was from Norway.
    I have the sense that everything in a scene and shot is done with a purpose to conote something, but the story line is so haphazard at times that it's difficult to have a breather and proces what is happening.

    I am and always will be an art school student at heart. It's hard to make projects like these. Animation is a very expensive and highly skilled endeavour, especially in a world getting overtaken by the "cheaper" 3D medium.
    By saying that I want you to know that I am incredibly biased and in love with the character design and stop motion as a medium. Even though you can notice a lot of corner cutting and it's not fully enjoyable…

    In the first 20 minutes I wasn't sure, the cinematography didn't speak to me and the animations seemed too out of place, but as it started to move forward, it began to hurt me. i had many realisations and many painful flashbacks because i can see my future in this movie, what if i truly do end up like that? depression, addiction and the bittersweet love, which still lives on, yet is unavailable. you meet a angel of the past…

    very good! not the best in cinematography, but very enjoyable nonetheless. maybe bad cinematography is camp??
    deffinetly do not reccomend without having watched atleast the first matrix movie.
    was very afraid about the 3h duration, but I was entertained throughout the whole movie and couldn't predict the plotwists. (which is for example a little annoying thing from when I watched Dune & other blockbusters)
    head canon that trinity is actually a lesbian because she deserves better XXX
    also the ending was kinda lame, but didn't really ruin the movie, you can also view it as camp.
