    I’m guessing that two things are responsible for the lack of comments here. 1- Often when something is really good and positive the comments are fewer as we (animation people) much prefer a gripe than supportive congratulation… or 2- This film is just baffling.
    I liked it in a few ways but is this just a load of gibberish? I’m utterly on the side of gibberish or course but, am I missing? is there more to this than my uncultured eye can comprehend?
