    ★★

    This is a very slow and silent film. In the beginning the film manages to capture your attention with very little. The animations are very well done and completely bring the rather bare looking still art to life.

    I rented this online and to be honest 40-50 minutes into the film I was kind of switching over to doing other things. I guess for me it it is sort of "boring"; it reminded me of The Tale of Princess Kaguya (also directed by Takahata) which also felt like a bit of a drag to me.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is depressing on all fronts, like going to a funeral. Technically everything's in order but prepare for that gloomy feeling afterwards. I'd expected more of a bio pic but the movie almost solely focuses on the moments after Kennedy's assasination.

    Top notch sound & photography but a general lack of storyline. In between Drive and Only God Forgives.

    I exited the movie theater after an hour of being irritated, that might say enough. It's boring, there's no story whatsoever, sometimes you're wondering if you're watching Nat Geo and the next moment there's just a lot of closeups and high DOF shots of Brad Pitt and his family.
