Mothballs: The Megalopolis Is Doomed And Nobody Knows Kung Fu

This Week: Doomed Megalopolis

At the risk of sounding patently insane to a certain subset of folks given its notoriety and it being on the “bad end” of Rintaro’s directing career, this may very well be a production that time and age has been at least a little kind to.
