    A Bastard’s Work Is Never Done

    Aspect 1: The Setting
    While riding by, you didn’t see The Crucification of Jesus Christ before we started this journey?

    My first viewing of a Satoshi Kon film couldn’t have been more gratifying. This is right up my alley for an adult animation. It’s sprinkled with religious undertones, adult & silly childlike humor, mystery and a little bit of action. This film is only…
