Battles Without Howls And Lupinity

Jin-Roh, the Wolf Brigade
is essentially an art movie.

It is similar to Fukasaku’s work, such as Battles Without Honor Or Humanity.

It’s a damn good movie. But it’s not a date movie. In all probability, your girlfriend will not enjoy watching this with you. This is a damn shame, because I know a few women who like art movies and who want to learn about anime, but this is NOT the movie to spark their interest.

This is a dark and violent and sad movie. It draws on the Brothers Grimm and their treatment of Little Red Riding Hood. It is unfortunately very insightful regarding the nature of modern society. This is unfortunate, because society sucks, and this movie shows us a little slice of that hell.
