    As we are informed in the film’s prologue, "Cats live in loneliness, then die like falling rain." Sh--, man, whatever. This is so stupid it’s positively genius.
  2. A dark allegory and a dazzling example of Japanese anime.

    So spectacularly bent that it exudes a contact cough-syrup high all its own.

    The kind of tale where even viewers who didn't miss a frame will feel as if they entered in the middle, muddled but amusing account of an adorable yet profanity-prone feline who travels through time and space is fueled by irony and incongruity.

    Asks a lot of the viewer, but it gives something back, though I'm not sure exactly what. It's an amusing and exasperating catnip dream about the adventures of a 1-year-old cartoon kitten.

    Tamala 2010 feels like either a singularly detail-organized dream, or an exceptionally formal drug trip.
  7. If you can make any sense of this you've probably been smoking whatever the animators were when they concocted it.
