COWBOY BEBOP: THE MOVIE
COWBOY BEBOP: TENGOKU NO TOBIRA
2001, Sony Pictures, 120 min, Japan, Dir: Shinichiro Watanabe

This is anime that's as far from Miyazaki as Hitchcock is from Chaplin, with all the emotion and visceral impact of any great live-action film. Set on a terraformed Mars, in a city that blends aspects of Manhattan, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Cairo and Paris, COWBOY BEBOP mixes past and future machinery, architecture and graphics with urban realism - in a story that's part film noir, part spaghetti Western and part HK actioner. Beautifully voiced, the script and characters entirely live up to the amazing design by Shiho Takeuchi. Special mention must be made of the jazzy, bluesy, rock score by Japanese composer Yoko Kanno - like the soundtrack of the best ’70s cop show never made. In Japanese with English subtitles.
