Friday Film: The Diary of Tortov Roddle

Surreal and beautiful Japanese animation, by Kunio Kato. Tortov Roddle is an intrepid traveler in strange landscapes, riding a long-legged pig and wearing a stove pipe hat. It’s like a silent film with accordion music, and occasional placards in English and Japanese commenting on the situation. I don’t use the word very often, but this film is magical.
