Anima (2019) - Rotten Tomatoes


Anima (2019)



Critic Consensus: Thom Yorke's eerie compositions blend perfectly with Paul Thomas Anderon's ethereal direction to form a bewitching meditation on alienation and what it means to connect.

"Anima" is something special.

For Netflix, the short film feels like something markedly fresh. On the heels of projects that would seem [to] indicate that the company is looking to branch into something new, this stunning music video/short film is certainly a new frontier.

It's an eternal question-Can we be more than we were originally built for?-and one Anima considers with moments both uncanny and beautiful.

I'm not a huge devotee of Yorke's solo stuff, but I found it very, very interesting. I'd liked to have seen it on a big screen.
