    The Legend of the Holy Drinker

    ★★★★

    I love stories that start off with an overt fable. It turns me on in the best ways. 

    This is a lyrical movie and it never ever wants to be anything else. A movie you’re either gonna let wash over you or one you’ll drown in from boredom.

    2nd - This animation is AMAZING!

    3rd - The biggest suspension of disbelief for me in this movie was the fact that if you have an overly critical/cold mother you can just lotically explain yourself and she’ll take in what you said and adjust her worldview to be a more caring and supportive mother. Because, it isn’t logic that makes her such a person and if you do try and confront…
