Did anybody else see this at AXNY/BAAF?

I thought it was a really amazing movie. I just sort of randomly thought about it now, since I saw the "anime you can watch over and over" thread, and I was thinking about how I'd like to watch this movie a few more times!

Anyway I blabbed about it in a review for my website a few months ago, if anybody wants to know more about it. I liked Perfect Blue but I think that Millenium Actress goes far beyond Perfect Blue in terms of quality. So good.

At first I thought of making a new topic, but I figured it would be better to DIG OUT AN OLD ONE that worked just as well.

I just saw Millenium Actress a week ago, and I loved it. Definitely thought it was better than Spirited Away (though that's just my opinion). I'm really looking forward to Satoshi Kon's next movie, Tokyo Grandfathers.

I'm not sure when, but it's going to be released in the States sometime. When it does, I can't wait to see it in theaters.

The power to become overly obsessed with an unnamed thief?

I reccently heard about this one.

Hm...curious as to what this is all about. Is this licensed out yet, or must I rely on fansubs for the time being?

All I've heard is that it will eventually have a theatrical release in the US (though most likely a limited one much like Cowboy Bebop) unless it wins an Oscar . . . then hopefully it'll pull a Spirited Away and be released everywhere!!

The movie is about an actress who is searching for the love her life. Yes, it sounds corny, but it is executed so well that I LOVE IT. The movie goes through her life, the movies she stars in, and how they parallel each other.

Nah,the power to say:
"As it would would happen,we got attacked by Bandits...."
and *boom*! You're on a train being attacked by Bandits.
I would also really like having her Carstopping power.
