Exceptional Film
23 June 2007 | by dtpriceSee all my reviews

I was into the story from the moment it began...not an easy accomplishment for an animated film. It manages to do the LA police/detective/murder story without lapsing into clichés. In fact, complex twists and turns in the plot keep you involved. Just when you think you have it figured out, you're hit with another sharp left turn. Loved the mix of murky film with animation. I recognized classic Hollywood landmarks. The art direction never gets dull. Angles are unexpected and animated effects are great. Great music by Keller, his first attempt at scoring a picture. He also is the voice of the main character. And the sex scenes.....animation is able to leave just enough to the imagination...it's better than a lot of filmed sex.
