My thoughts on this might change later. The film was almost too much to take in all at once.
Certain parts of this were eloquent, all of it was visually gorgeous.
Like Spirited Away, this felt a little too strange and needlessly complex for its own good. It's layered, but alot of what it has to say gets lost in the noise. Many things feel glossed over, from plot points to characters. Much of the film is rushed.
Nonetheless, the world is rich and fantastical enough to make it impossible not to get swept up in its ceaseless delights.
Definitely interesting and meaningful, just a tad overzealous and distractingly shiny.
