There is a reason Roots Search has been forgotten: it’s terrible. It isn’t terrible because the character development is shoddy, inconsistent, and arbitrary. It isn’t terrible because the plot is convoluted to the point of making obtuse art films seem lucid in comparison. It isn’t even terrible because of its low-budget animation quality or awkward pacing. With the right mixture of each of these, one could make a title that is “so bad it’s good”. And yet, somehow, Roots Search manages to just barely miss even this mark. It’s simply a case of being “so bad it’s still terrible”.
