Anima ★★★★

Okay...yeah, that was fantastic. Leave it to Paul Thomas Anderson and Thom Yorke, perhaps the two finest and most impressively innovative artists of the past twenty-five years, to make what could have been a run-of-the-mill fifteen minute-long promotional music video into one of the most creative, beautiful, and moving short films ever conceived. Everything is pretty much flawless, from the music to the visuals to the technical precision. Like I said, PTA is one of the greatest filmmakers and Thom Yorke is one of the greatest musicians/songwriters, and what they did here was fantastic. And I guess the full album came out today too, so time to give it a listen.
