So, I wonder if someone of you guys have watched the brilliant masterpiece by Mamoru Oshii from 1985 that is called Tenshi No Tamago. One of my favorite movies. Surrealist, symbolic, gothic, cryptic, gorgeous, trippy, almost depraved of any dialogue, oniric, cute, sad, scary and sooo open to interpretation. Marvelous direction and beautiful art design by the guy from FF VI ( I don't remember the name right now). The music is so amazing. By the way our guy Yoshiyuki Sadamoto is also involved.

Haven't seen it yet, but you're thinking of Yoshitaka Amano, I assume.

I love that film so much, I've even imported the Blu-Ray recently. There really is nothing else like it.

Wonderful music, too. I like to play the concert version of the music from the closing credits:

Paul plays "Prelude" from Angel's Egg (score)
