Akira

Showing as part of the Madman Anime Film Festival at the Schonell.

I haven’t seen this film for a long time, it was great to see on the big screen. How do you describe a film like this? It’s big and small at the same time, dealing with small things like teenage angst, but ramping up to deal with questions of identity and being like Ghost in the Shell.

Some of the anime feels dated now, but some of it (I’m thinking of the building shots) is still startlingly modern.
