It's always odd to me how others see this show's slow explosion of wildness and strangeness as a fault. This is a story about a couple of forbidden lovers going off the rails, breaking free of their fate and running wild. The nervous, sketchy animation reflects their trepidation. As it becomes more psychedelic, like a feedback freakout outro jam, they become free. Kemonozume shatters '00s anime conventions.
This is another weird one to be on MUBI as it is a series and not a movie but nonetheless. Awesome art direction but the story gets really stale after episode 5. Granted, it's a really weird anime in general, but it gets progressively goofy as it goes on and it kinda shits the bed.
It features a host of cinematically thrilling moments (the first few episodes in particular) and then the narrative derails in a spectacular fashion (which is neither good or bad, it's simply what it does). Not as cohesive as Yuasa's other works, but still a worthy work.
