Director: Ari Folman
Original Release: 2008
My Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5
The story is brutal. As one might expect, the horrors Folman had forgotten are considerable. I probably would have done my best to block them out, too. The artwork is highly inventive - it looks like rotoscoping but is actually a combination of Adobe Flash cutouts and good old fashioned cel animation. Folman claims Joe Sacco and Otto Dix as influences and I sense Frank Miller, too. The film was adapted into a graphic novel.
I was impressed by the film but I wouldn't watch it again. Too heavy.
