A by now legendary cult anime. Cat Soup used to be one of those in-crowd titles that were passed around on obscure anime forums. You had to be quite entrenched in the genre (or extremely lucky) to have heard of the film, though throughout the years its reputation has grown significantly. Solid animation, a high dose of absurdity mixed with surrealism, and high pacing make this film a real treat. And every time you feel you start to get a grip on the film, Sato introduces something completely new to pull the rug from under you. An absolute delight.
