A esta vaina la consideran una especie de obra maestra ultra-profunda tan cargada de significado que se viola a GitS, Eden: It's an Endless World! y Serial Experiment Lain juntos.  Bueno les diré que eso no solo es una gran mentira, sino que esta "magistral " película es una de las cosas más sobrevaloradas del mundo del anime y el manga.   Para empezar los "simbolismos" son la cosa más ale... read more
View all Angel's Egg reviews
A young girl is the sole protector of a very precious, large egg. Her lair is near a large, abandoned, decaying gothic city inhabited by restless shadows. A mysterious young man arrives one day, and eventually wins her trust. They converse sparsely about obscure philosophical and theological topics, and she shows him some astonishing fossils and works of historic and scientific art.
Release date: 22 December 1985

" Date: 3/28/2021 Viewed: Youtube Re-Watch Note: If I had to pick a favorite anime from Mamoru Oshii, it would be Angel's Egg. Angel's Egg is a fantastic work of art and is truly one of a kind in my opinion. The animation is still fantastic even over 35 years later and the art direction from Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D) is breathtaking. Every scene in Angel's Egg will make your jaw drop to the ground because it is a very stunning movie to look at. You also have a chilling music score tha"

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (128 tv items)

"And despite all that, Angel's Egg is not good either. It has all the positives I already mentioned earlier but there's no overall plot or characters in it. It's funny how opinions about something can change with time. When I first watched it in 2015 I was completely blown away by it, I rewatched it five years later and found it unbearable."

Puedes darles el significado de lo que sea, lo que significa que no tienen un valor simbólico real. Puedes decir que esto es una especie de alegoría al apocalipsis y que blah blah blah, que el muchacho con el bastón es el anticristo y que la niña es lo que queda de los humanos.

2018: Films I've Watched in January (24 movies items)

"First Watched 1/27/2018 Now this film has been described as more of an animated art piece as opposed to a straight forward narrative. I believe that is a really important mindset to have before viewing this film because I could completed understand how many people would have to be in the right kind of mood to watch a film like this (similar to how you have to be in the mood before watching 2001: A Space Odyssey in my opinion). This film is brimming with symbolism, metaphors, and an alternati"

2017 movies (120 movies items)

"A wonderfully animated tale by Yoshitaka Amano (famous for his promotional arts of the Final Fantasy franchise)and Mamoru Oshii (director of Ghost in the Shell), but that drags too much... an one hour animation that feels like two. The movie has few conversations and full of symbolisms that unfortunaly I could not connect with."
