BEYOND FEST! 30th Anniversary!
AKIRA, 1988, FUNimation, 124 min, Japan, Dir: Katsuhiro Ohtomo. A landmark in animation, this visually stunning film exposed the rest of the world to Japanese anime and left its mark on such live-action films as THE MATRIX. In a post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo swarming with violent motorcycle gangs and antigovernment revolutionaries, Kaneda must stop lifelong friend Tetsuo, whose out-of-control psychic powers could destroy the city. The film moves with such kinetic energy that you'll be hanging on for dear life. - Richard Harrison, The Washington Post.
