| Bad, but good bad
A mess, but what a beautiful mess.

It's clear the director wanted this to be a philosophical film, but he failed to get his vision across to the audience. There are bunch of bizarre scenes and plot points that don't make any sense.

Still, this my third favorite UY film. Despite the nonsense, it is very entertaining to watch. A lot of the surreal moments and imagery in this is fascinating.They throw so many things at you that if you didn't like one scene, you'll like the next one. The cast is humorous enough that they manage to ground the film so that it doesn't become a pretentiousness fest.

The animation is fluid and gorgeous. It dates very well and is the best animated film of the entire series. It has a unique musical score and I have to give the composer props for creating music that perfectly complimented some very weird stuff.

Not technically a good film, but it has always had a place in my heart.
