Watched MirrorMask tonight. Hmmm... I'm not sure where to begin. Dave McKean's art is inspired and fascinating, and there are some very memorable scenes in the film, especially one involving an old Carpenters hit.

That said, it's quite a bit more stylish than substantial, and I think it's fair to say the film's a little trippy. Okay, maybe more than a little trippy. At this point the movie version of The Wall seems pretty lucid.

The main character, Helena, spends most of the film in a surreal fantasy world accompanied by newfound acquaintance, Valentine. Although a connection wasn't revealed in the film, I strongly suspect there's genetic link between Valentine and Frylock. Cousins, perhaps.
