Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion ★★★★★

"You'll learn that you made mistakes and regret them. That's me in a nutshell."
"A cycle of false elation and self-loathing."
"But each time, I made a little more progress."

There's no way I could completely comprehend everything I just saw in this mind-bending psychedelic heck of an alternate ending to the series—and that's what I kinda love about this. I find solace in not grasping every detail and every unfathomable event in the film. After all, the only thing that matters is how powerful it made an impact on me. Hideaki Anno has created a deeply meaningful and cathartic closure to the NGE series that will surely stay with me for a long time.

Now excuse me while I go and replay Komm Süsser Tod again and again until my existential thoughts slowly consume me.
