Nate Hatelane’s review published on Letterboxd:
Katsuhiro Otomo's Memories — Part 1
A fantastic sci-fi tragedy.
In a galaxy, far far away. The grandiose opera music could be heard as they walk along the hallway of memories. The monumental and melodious symphony resonates really well with our fear and curiosity. Our bodies might decay, but the memories that we created will always persist eternally. A nostalgia into the memories is an odyssey into our deepest rumination and the reminiscence of the life itself. It constructed the parts of us. It separated the parts of us. Grief. Trauma. Happiness. All merged into a piece of memory. It was as beautiful as a rose, and was as sharp as its thorns.
I love the detailed visuals.
