Robot Carnival - Review
One day in 1987, Fantasia and Heavy Metal met in a bar. They had a few drinks, got to talking and eventually went back to Heavy Metalâ??s place. And thatâ??s how Robot Carnival came to be. When I say that Robot Carnival is a fusion of Fantasia and Heavy Metal, Iâ??m not being a smarty-pants. It is an animated anthology film with each segment containing stories set to orchestrational, industrial and techno music, very reminiscent of Fantasia. However, many of the stories carry more modern, darker sci-fi fantasy tones that are really in-tune with what youâ??d see in Heavy Metal (just without the gratuitous nudity). The film is honestly marvelous, and it depresses me that there arenâ??t more films like it in the animation genre.
