Just saw Immortal(2004)

I put this in the Blade Runner related topic because it had some themes related to BR, as well as some visuals. I don't know if anybody here has seen it yet or not, but it is a beautiful movie by comic book artis Enkai Bilal (if a bit on the farfetched side). It uses computer animation and live action where the Live action is in the minority. It blends better than many, but it is still somewhat primitive in that respect. It is set in a futuristic New York City, where an alien pyramid with egyptian gods has parked above. The big Tyrell like company is a genetics firm called Eugenics. I have a hard time telling to much about it because there is so much stuff in it, it would take quite a while and maybe hurt rather than help your understanding of it. It like BR, is a visual feast with a subdued but rich story. It has eliments of BR, 5th Eliment and the Matrix. Recomened for the artistic crowd and readers of Heavy Metal where Bilal (like Mobeus) gained fame.
