Have you heard of the movie Metropolis (the anime one)? No? How about film scorer Toshiyuki Honda? No, again? Well, you’re missing out! It’s a delightfully quirky and surprisingly touching film, despite a somewhat slim plot and cursory characterizations. And the Metropolis soundtrack is especially charming and catchy… in particular, it’s surprisingly jazzy, providing a sometimes-stark (and undoubtedly intended) counterpoint with the dark feel of the film.
