Next up was the new Sono, which by now I expect to be weird and unique and charming. I got all those things. Perhaps this is unfair, but I was kind of hoping for a bit more. This sounds incredibly jaded and douchy, but a Sono film where a turtle gets flushed down the toilet and winds up in a puppeted world where an alcoholic homeless guy brews up speech and wish candy that lets discarded toys and stuffed animals talk and transforms the turtle into a giant turtle that gives hit songs to its former owner is not weird and unique enough for me!
So... the sewer stuff with the old toys and the turtle didn't really do it for me. I think that's my problem with this movie. If I accepted that a bit more and had more fun with that then I think I would've liked this more. The other stuff, with the introvert guy who becomes a super huge star (based on 2 songs!?) and winds up in a shiny silver suit performing for millions was also a bit tame. However, the ending, where the beginning of the film comes back on a larger scale, was really great and connected beautifully. There is certainly a lot to love here.
