I blew this movie off when it came out for all the obvious reasons, but I kept being told randomly by odd people that they liked it. So finally one night I sat down and watched it. And then immediately watched it again. And the next day, taking notes, watched it a third time.
This movie is silly in precisely one way: it’s source. On every other level, it is a massive achievement that treats film as a plastic rather than a recording medium. Exceptionally interesting and deserves its own post. Maybe I’ll get around to it.
For now, watch Speed Racer.
