Mind Game (2004) IMDb


Arthouse absurdity.


A fairly normal guy gets into a situation where he (eventually) chooses to fight a yakuza psycho, in order to defend the girl whose love he lost through inaction a long time ago. Unfortunately, he doesn’t stand a chance, and Yahweh’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Nonetheless, death brings out the reckless best in our protagonist - so much of it, in fact, that it takes a nutty old Jonah to hide everyone until the time comes to return to the world.


Christian allusions in progressive Japanese animation, yet again. Cf. Mobile Police Patlabor: The Movie (1989).
