Movie Info

Katsuhiro Otomo garnered worldwide attention in 1988 for his cyberpunk classic Akira, featuring a fully realized dystopian future that rivaled Blade Runner. In this animated triptych, all written by Otomo, he once again gazes darkly into the future. The first segment, called "Magnetic Rose" and directed by Koji Morimoto, is set in the year 2092 and centers on a quartet of futuristic losers on a orbiting garbage ship, collecting junked satellites. While trolling about the heavens, they encounter

A trilogy of anime aimed more at adults than kids. From slow and thoughtful to hilarious to pointedly satiric. Anime at its best.

Audience Reviews for Memories

Memories is a collection of three unrelated Manga animations, each one directed by a different director and with their own unique styles. Magnetic Rose, directed by K˘ji Morimoto is the serious short that sees 2 astronauts trapped in a fantastical world aboard an unmanned spaceship. It's beautifully animated and aptly dark and mysterious it's almost a shame that it wasn't made into a feature length film. Stink Bomb, directed by Tensai Okamura seems to be the least popular film of the three among reviewers but I rather liked it. It is full of the odd and surreal humour that many Manga films are known for and it breaks up the two other films rather well - again, a feature length version or even a real life version (directed by either Joon-ho Bong or Joon-Hwan Jang) would be awesome! Last of all, Cannon Fodder, directed by Katsuhiro Ohtomo has a much more serious tone but a more childlike style of animation. It's quite Orwellian in its idea and like an Asian LS Lowry in its style (if you can picture such a thing). It's probably the most thought-provoking and original of the three films but I would say they are all equally good in their own different ways.

Excellent first segment, forgetable second, and perfect third. The last one is probably the most sharp and accurate commentary anyone has ever made about war since George Orwell.
