Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo ★★★★★

Not the Evangelion film anybody wanted or expected, but a heart breaking surrealist nightmare that challenged fan expectation just like END OF EVANGELION did all those years ago. This isn't as horrifying or philosophical - END OF will always reign supreme - but it's a deeply affecting portrait of Shinji Ikari's desire to feel loved set against a post-post apocalyptic wasteland where piloting the Eva - the one thing Shinji proved good at - means triggering the end of the goddamn world.
