A movie featuring three stories from the directors Yoshiaki Kawajiri, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Rintaro

A slender anthology brackets two dark shorts by Kawajiri and Otomo inside the titular Labyrinth, a chiller by veteran Rintaro. Little Sachiko is warned by her mother about playing with strangers and staring into mirrors, but she ignores the warnings with results as predicted by the Brothers Grimm. She and her cat stray into a carnival straight out of a Ray Bradbury story-the kind where you don't want to stay after dark but can't find the exit. Otomo's story, Order to Stop Construction, is a classic SF essay on the possibilities of chaos inherent in the most efficient automated system. Kawajiri contributes Running Man, the tale of a top racing driver who finds he just can't quit. Despite its futuristic trappings, it's anime for the couch-potato audience, a warning against machine addiction that they'll forget while slavering over the gleaming, roaring engines, and the least interesting of the three plot premises. All three selections ooze dark, edgy style. See Robot Carnival and Memories for anthologies on a different theme.
