First part more focused and cutting; second part more risky in theme and style. Nervy all over but difficult to love.
Industry self-critique isn't new but hasn't been executed this way or this recently. Complex engagement with animation, in subject and practice. Anime beyond Japan. Wright keeps surprising us.
