    Honestly the depiction of the after/before life in this really creeped me out! And ultimately made it hard for me to fully enjoy the rest of the movie.

    Everything in New York is absolutely beautiful, the animation is so perfect and specific and alive.

    Unfortunately the script has no idea what it wants to be doing and all these elements never fully build up into anything. Honestly it seems like it has too much to say, which may be surprising given the kind of movie this is. But it has a lot of stray thoughts on feminism, soul…
