Everything and the kitchen sink got thrown in. For better or worse.
Good example of a kind of terrible script executed well enough to keep your attention and have you go all in on the crazy.
This is a very strange movie. Heavy with metaphors and themes that don't really make any logical sense despite an almost procedural detective mystery approach to its story.
The best way to describe it is like Twin Peaks with more Anime tropes, including a 10 year old super smart kid, some anime perv stuff, and fantastic visuals.
There are some rather strong characters who do have growth arcs, and the final culmination of it all does lead to a rather touching scene.
At the end of the day though, It definitely left me scratching my head trying to unpack everything I just witnessed by the time the credits roll. Since much like Twin Peaks, you do feel like there's meaning behind every surreal thing that happens in it and you're given the information on screen. But it's up to you to put it all together in your brain in a way that makes sense.
So I think I recommend this just for at least the visual side of things. But be prepared for what's basically a long winding surrealist adventure if you're strapped in for the story.
