Movie Reviews

Just like the cover blurb: "One of the best anime films ever
Rolando Villagomez | Minneapolis, Mn | 08/12/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll even say this: this is the best anime FILM of the last 7 years, the last being "Howl's Moving Castle" by Miyazaki. My review will be simple and to the point. You see, I hardly ever buy movies, maybe once a year. A film has to extrodinarily impress me in order for it to be added to my collection, and Tekkonkinkreet is one of those films. If this movie has gotten your interest in anyway, just get it. It's the kind of anime that transcends genre pigeonholing and also cultural barriers. I cry every time I watch it. An unforgettable movie!"

"This was the very first anime-style full length movie I ever bought,and when I first got it I watched it once or twice,then shelved it,having enjoyed it but not fully appreciating it as yet.
About 6 months ago,for whatever reason,I watched it again,and with this third viewing I finally realized what a masterpiece Tekkonkinkreet really is.With every viewing since then,I seem to become more and more involved in the story,the characters,and the themes presented throughout.The music by Plaid adds subtlety to some of the most memorable scenes.
Black's struggle between the light and the darkness is made crucial by the development of the two boys and their interactions with each other and their environment-the resolution of that struggle produces,for me,an almost euphoric feeling;in the moment when the two make contact after having been separated to face their internal realities I invariably tear up and get a chill down my spine...
This masterpiece truly gets better with each viewing.For anime fans with appreciation of more than constant action and who possess an inner sense of what really matters in life,this little gem is surely a must-have film."
