    Pleasure pontificating without much propulsion
    It has Shatter Dead's poetics, in a much smaller scope and sense of execution. A groovy concept and world, would make for a cool comic.

    It feels as though the movie's are only functional as 'refreshers' from what I can tell. I wish they had more drastically deviated from the series, but I understand that there might not have been a 'Rebuild' budget.

    Still, the Golden Age Arc movies for Berserk brought new animation concepts into a nearly untouched script which allowed those to feel 'new.' In comparison the Geass flicks are less essential and exciting.

    Ouch

    A lush, ominous spiral of memory, compassion, all that longing and knocking about your noodle that won't ever quit - you don't know why the memory or heart pang came up - beating back against time.

    Will be a bit overlong for some, I assume, but Kaufman colors the film with plenty of stylistic interludes, glimpses into both 'characters' deteriorating sense of anchor in the blizzard tide and our endless want for distraction.

    Great production design and cinematography for a very tired-not-wired script.
