The Congress

Ari Folman’s Waltz With Bashir remains one of my all-time favourite animated films, with its gorgeous animation, incredible soundtrack, and chilling subject matter, so I’ve been waiting to see what Folman’s sophomore animated project would be. The answer: The Congress, a weird hybrid live-action/animated movie with a strange metanarrative, about Robin Wright playing herself as she is scanned into a computer and turned into a fully autonomous animated character. I’m getting a weird Heavy Metal vibe off of this, but also an almost Gilliam-like sci-fi vibe as well. It’s so unusual, it defies description, but needless to say, I’m intrigued.
