(Shinichiro Watanabe, Tensai Okamura & Yoshiyuki Takei, Japan, 2001, 115 min, in Japanese with English subtitles)
Its 2071 and a terrorist organization threatens life on Mars by spreading a deadly pathogen. Then comes a crew of sexy intergalactic bounty hunters, ready to kick some ass.
Its fifty years in the future and humans have fled Earth to settle on more habitable space rocks. A crew of bounty hunters travels on spaceship Bebop, picking up bounties and fucking up baddies in this new galactic Wild West. After a terrorist spreads a pathogen across the capital of Mars, injuring hundreds, the Mars government puts out an enormous bounty for the terrorists arrest. The Bebop team, tired of eating cheap ramen, docks on Mars and takes the job.
One of the most celebrated anime of all time, Cowboy Bebop is loved for its ice cool neo-noir style and sci-fi ennui. Adult Swim picked up the series as its first anime title in 2001, making it many Westerners gateway into anime more generally. Its known for its movie-quality animation, but the series only actual movie, Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, stays unstreamable. Like the series, it features music by composer Yoko Kanno and her band Seatbelts. It fuses rock, country-western, opera, jazz, and Arabic elements into a literally out-of-this-world score that deserves to be experienced in a theater.
Not caught up on the series? No worries! The film stands on its own. Also, Cowboy Bebop has a great dub, so well show the dub Dec. 10 at 4pm & Dec. 11 at 7pm, in addition to the sub on Dec. 10 at 7pm & Dec. 11 at 4pm. Criss cross!
