A self-referential Moebius Strip that keeps folding back into itself, Lelouch's film is a semi-autobiographical film about love which is not a Love Movie. The romance here is his romance with Cinema. This two and a half hour epic starts out as a Lumiere-esque silent, and ends up as a futuristic sci-fi. Ultimately, it is a critique of, and a celebration of humanity. 4.7*
FROM BEGINNING TO END
will floor you
definitely a few lulls but that is part of lelouch's rhythm, one that ultimately is very rewarding
when you get to that end, has it all been worth it? i don't probably...is life worth it?
