(es) wrote: Up there for one of my all-time favorite documentaries. Granted, it helps that I have not seen a lot of documentaries, but I could probably write a good, long essay about this film. In particular, I would focus on the use of animation, and how it uses it in such a way that the film examines not just its own subject matter, but also the usage of animation in general. The film itself though, even as a documentary, seems rather plot-heavy; if I were to draw an example to how this film feels scripted (though it really isn't), would be Memento, as it studies a man's memory recovery after traumatic events between Palestine and Israel. While in no way an uplifting film, to me, it is one of the more important ones, at least in terms of animated film. Seriously, the usage of animation throughout really helps with studying memory loss and PTSD through disorientation and blurred animation at times, and just really feels like you have been transported to a dreamscape. Near the end of the film, something happens, which I won't spoil, but it is an incredibly brilliant move by the director, and ends the film on just the right note. This is just one Hell of an interesting film, and perhaps deserves to be in my Top 30 (which I know I just posted recently, but I'm going to think about this for a while before I edit that list). But really, I might even be able to do a commentary track on this film just because it is so interesting. Like other documentaries such as Man on Wire, it feels like some sort of like it isn't a documentary, and it works so well here. I could gush about this some more, but trust me on this, it is likely to be, if nothing else, an extremely interestingly made documentary, if only for the fact that it was animated.
