Reviews and Comments

From Toadette :

I have written a long analysis of this mostly forgotten film on an awesome new animation research/analysis blog, On the Ones. Led by tamerlane, an animation connoisseur and well-respected Anitwtter poster whose largely overlooked (among Western animation fans, that is) writings on animation I dare say are as good as anything folks like Jerry Beck and Thad have written, it'll also feature contributions from ibcf, magnil, Gemon, and yours truly in the future! See my analysis here (and do NOT forget to read tamerlane's giant article on Russian animation, already up on the blog): https://ontheones.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/the-forgotten-doll-1980-tadanari-okamotos-most-personal-film/
