I especially liked two songs flotsam and jetsam and the title number they seemed to catch what you called the golden nonsense of the heart.

Visually, John D. Wilson's movie is one of the most exciting animated films ever made.

It is a production that is constantly at odds with itself in regard to both style and substance.
