There really is a very good movie to be made from the film that's here. I'm not sure how long that film would be, but probably no more than half the length of the current film. In its current state, this is pretty much unwatchable. WAY too much repetition. The animation is very good. I was interested in the main character for the first 45 minutes or so. There is a lot of innovative stuff in the film and I thought it would be a wonderful film until about an hour into it, when I started to realize that this might be an interesting file to the filmmaker, but maybe not so much for others. But by the end, it was very hard to sit through.
