Editorial Reviews

It’s nearly time for the debut of the most anticipated anime movie of the year, Talking Head. There’s just a few minor problems: the director has disappeared and the movie isn’t even started! Desperate to meet their deadline, the studio hires a "migrant technical director" to fill in for the missing director. But there’s more going on here than just slipping deadlines. One by one, the staff is being murdered and it’s only a matter of time before the new director’s next on the list! Explore the world of anime from a completely new angle!

* From one of the premier directors of Japanese Cinema - Director Mamoru Oshii
* Live Action Theatrical Feature
* Anamorphic Widescreen

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to describe November 13, 2003
This is a must see for true film buffs. The pacing can be a bit laborious at times but there are many intellectual treasures to be found here. The ending leaves a lot to be desired but the film is nonetheless thought provoking overall and takes quite a few risks in the way it tells its story. If the pace had been tighter and the ending not so predictable I might have given it a much higher rating. For all its flaws it has some brilliant ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars WARNING!!!! November 5, 2003
That's a typo up there. This movie has NOTHING to do with Kieslowski (who made a 30 min. Polish film entitled "Talking Heads." ANyhow, DONT BUY THIS because you think it has anything to do with Kieslowski!!! It does not.
