twiggymoo's rating of the film The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

I remember studying this poem and school and not even managing to get halfway through it as it was very long and narration heavy. Luckily, the brilliant combination of Wells' masterful oration, Dore's stark artwork juxtaposed with Jordan's whimsical animation style and soundtrack produce a film that left me pleasantly uncomfortable and on the edge of my seat, filled with awe. Certainly made the poem more enjoyable.
