The Sky Crawlers: Flying Bassett Hound Brigade

June 10, 2009

Even though I was excited to see that another one of Mamoru Oshii’s movies got released in the U.S., The Sky Crawlers sat around for a few days at home, mostly out of a vague sort of dread. What if it was the one that ruined Oshii for me? What if it was a turgid, boring mess that took itself way too seriously? But it garnered a buttload of awards in Japan and seemed to be fairly well received by fans of his work, so I popped it in late one night and hoped for the best!
