Now that its on DVD, see it and judge for yourself
It is totally possible that I am not as gifted as others at analyzing films. I am certainly no critic, simply a chick who loves the movies. Personally, I enjoyed this one. It was dark, strange and surprisingly sweet. I won't pretend to be Ebert or the other guy by commenting on various camera angles, lighting choices, plot development or editing. I can only say that I was completely engaged in the story, genuinely concerned for the main character, and disturbed (in a good way) by the strange animation.
I enjoyed it, you may not. Since its finally available on DVD from amazon.ca why not pick it up, watch it and judge for yourself? Don't go by what a bunch of people (including yours truly) with too much time on their hands have to say.
