    Insomnia

    ★★½

    To be honest, this was somewhat of a chore. It seemed not realistic enough to be moving, not unrealistic enough to be fun. Though it almost manages the latter.

    Marona's Fantastic Tale

    ★★★½

    All the animation techniques on display and the character work... pretty fantastic. Not that complex on plot level as is common with artsier animation films. Is similar to "Garfield's 9 Lives" starring a rival animal, which is no slight.
    After some more deliberation:
    Bonus points: tricked me into thinking this was based on a book, which it apparently isn't.
    Minus points: you can't plan for shit (at least, as a dog), and happiness is fleeting so just treasure memories of it, I guess, is kind of a bummer of a moral.
    More bonus points: dog's wing-ears and TMNT parody.
