Meandering thoughts of a Bay Area college student… be prepared for some bipolar vocabulary

The Sky Crawlers

A 2008 film released in Japanese theaters… this is definitely the type of film I would see. It’s sad and thought-provoking… plus the entire plot is pretty fucked up once you realize what’s going on. It might be a film I’d only watch once though, since it’s a bit slow. But I’ve said that about a lot of things and I’ve been wrong before.

(Oh yeah, there’s a bit of blood near the beginning. Just warning you!)

Interesting side note… well, interesting for me at least (:D) is that the planes used in this movie are actually based on Japanese World War Two aircraft that never saw combat. They were either prototypes or still in the planning stage. So YES, they’re real!
