Here I’ve removed the BOOK 2 layer (notice that the shadows stay put even if the jugs that cast them are gone!) to give a closer look at the watercolor painting itself. Look at the detail on the wicker baskets, done with a skill worthy of a Miyazaki classic film. Then click the thumbnail for a look at the bottom layer alone, showing the rather bleak desert landscape.

You may be skeptical about the achievement of Nakamura’s film: I like many find it a mixture of chillingly effective dramatic scenes embedded in an muddy Akira-influenced apocalyptic script. But art like this will make you a believer: one doesn’t find total visual impact and finely-crafted detail like this outside of a true labor of love.
