Memories (1995)

Streaming on Amazon Prime | imdb | trailer

I am super picky about anime. Something about the genre usually turns me off, with the exception of films like Barefoot Gen, Ninja Scroll, Perfect Blue and a small handful of others. I just added Memories to that short list. It’s an anthology of Katsuhiro Otomo stories directed by three anime heavyweights: Kōji Morimoto (The Animatrix), Tensai Okamura (Ninja Scroll / Ghost in a Shell), and Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira). The whole film is very cohesive and filled with detailed, and psychedelic sci-fi animation. Do you happen to live where weed is legal? Bonus for you.

Available on domestic Blu-ray but it’s out of print / selling for $$$.

Cold Case Hammarskjöld (2019)

Streaming on Hulu | imdb | trailer

A Danish comedian looks into a conspiracy theory behind the mysterious 1961 death of the Secretary-General of the United Nations. The film starts out with a Spinal Tap feel and ends with some very real and disturbing discoveries. Highly recommended.

Not available on Blu-ray.
