    The Discarnates


    I'm watching this as I finished the book recently and saw Obayashi directed it, which took me aback as it's not a story I could imagine him adapting. And it's like super lovely and loyal to the book's tone and atmosphere while doing a lot of interesting stuff with the lighting and the score is great and the acting is impeccable

    Then I get to the ending and-while it doesn't *ENTIRELY* change anything-it dawned on me "Oh right THAT'S Obayashi I remember directing this"

    And it makes it even more fucking awesome I'd ALMOST recommend reading the book first but tbh it works either way

    Underrated way Welles dominates this film is that I'm pretty sure the collective total of screentime he has doesn't even clock in at 15 minutes and most of it is taken up by the Ferris Wheel scene

    Also ACAB but Calloway is just one of cinema's great cops. So wonderfully drole and the only character who lives on planet Earth in this thing

    Who'd've thought one of the greatest soundtracks ever composed was done so on the fucking zither ?!

    Intellectual brain: This movie is an excellent deconstruction of class roles and how social norms and manipulating and exploiting the working class makes said roles impossible to dissipate even from the inside lest you be cast out as "one of them" and truly brutalised by a system bred to protect those born into privelege you can seldom imagine
