Waking Life

Waking Life ★★★

Found a lot more to appreciate on a rewatch, but still can't fully vibe with this thing. Into the more conversational segments, it's the monologues that begin to make me feel like I'm reading a philosophy textbook (I can't really deal with monologues in general, something about one voice speaking in one tone for more than 30 seconds just turns my brain off). The animation is less stylistically consistent than I remembered, feels appropriately disjointed and in some cases unfinished, like real life is uneasily bleeding into the dreamscape, all a good thing imo.
