|Schizophrenic acid trip||0 out of 1 user found this review helpful.|
Dead Leaves proves that not all Japanese animation is 'anime' in style. This schizophrenic acid trip you have to be in the right mood for - it's like bad, silly Invader Zim meets anime like no other anime. It is extremely avant-garde with both English and Japanese words appearing on the screen, often nonsensically.
'What are we?' 'Does it really matter?' is the final lines of the movie, and that pretty much sums it up. No comprehensible story, just psychedelic animation with a breakbeat soundtrack.
