  • The Fall

    The Fall


    Beautiful its a perfect way to resume this film. What starts as a lush epic story about the power of storytelling and with a style similar to the old occidental romantization of the east, then developes into a love letter to cinema particularly the old spectacle cinema that tries to amaze the viewers by showing them pictures of outstanding beauty or/and risk.
     Like a sweet goodbye to the pre CGI era.

  • Metropolis



    The animation is similar to those kind of kids series of the Astroboy era, and it hasn't particularly aged well. Except for the architecture of the city and the girl robot and her swirling curly hair.
    The script by Akira's writer is a fine mix of noir & sci fi but it doesn't thoroughly succeeds especially in the middle parts where the movie seems stuck. Still the ending is wonderful and heartbreaking, a good film just highly inferior to its source material.
