Avalon is a Japanese written and directed science fiction film made in Polish in Poland which heavily utilises Arthurian myth and opera. It’s about as bizarre as you’d think. The character development is patchy to be polite. The CGI is fairly intelligently used. The overall look of the film is a moody smoky yellow. The story seems logically incoherent, but in interesting, Existenz-ey ways. Despite its obvious shortcomings, the moose approves and recommends it. Big what is reality and meaning of existence questions, and on the whole just something different at last.

Tangentially, but related: Has American culture got anything left to offer? (Was originally tempted to post simply “American culture has nothing left.”)
