Anime DVD Review

We can only describe it as "David Lynch goes anime!". A weird, provocative, entertaining and etherial trip through a halucenogenic nightmare. It's really a "what if David Lynch directed anime written by William Gibson" kind of thing, as there's plenty of cyberpunk influence as well as noir sense and plenty of paranoia, all twisted and intertwined inside of a you-can-never-quite-understand-it plotline. Kind of like the independent film "Pi".

Lain: Lynch Like Anime!Folks who like anime just for the cool explosions and lazer battles aren't going to find this their cup of tea. This is anime that has a deliberate slowness, building up, layer upon layer, until you can feel the suffocation of the characters. This is anime you'll either love or hate. And if you don't hate it, you'll discover that it's very likely your favorite anime series of all time. Yes, it's weird. Yes, it's different. And that's why anime is an art form.

Anime Soundtrack Review

If you've been watching Serial Experiments: Lain on TECHTV, then you're already in love with the impressive grunge/electronica opening theme. But this Pioneer-released soundtrack is more like Dark Side of the Moon, in that it's also peaceful and moody, while also being a little creepy, just like the series itself.

LainJust as you settle peacefully between tracks 2 and 4, track 5 will jarr you back to life (or make you stand on the gas pedal!). With a variety of musical styles represented, there's something for everyone here; trust us, just get it. You won't be disappointed.
