The 365 days animation consists of sequence of 8760 pictures, all different shape and color, hand-drawn by the director every day in 365 days. This is the ultimate analog approach by the abstract animated film creator in digital era.

I opened an account to write this review, and to be honest I find it laughable that people who consider themselves visual or unable to properly decipher abstract art feel the need to write on what they do not know. I think a persons inability to stay entertained during Wonder is directly related to the overstimulation that most anime provides. Obviously ignoring that this is not like other anime, the main indication is that it is done completely by hand, no CGI or cutting edge tech production to engage your overly stimulated brain.

The only think that can be seen in its merits, which lie read more

Mizue Mirai’s animations are noteworthy for creating the sensation of a digital-esque cleanliness, despite being hand drawn. Most of Mirai's works feel like they're proof of concepts, but Wonder feels complete and in my mind is his magnum opus. This film came together when somewhere in 2012 Mirai decided to start drawing one second of a short film every day for a year, with evey day continuing from the last day. Though some parts of the film feel much simpler, as if Mirai was too busy that day to create anything impressive, the vast majoritiy of this film is wonderfully animated, with an enormous amount read more

Writing a review for an abstract art film is an interesting task. Any "meaning" I could write about would really only be my interpretation, and to be honest I'm not really one of those guys who spends hours of time poring over and interpreting the abstract.

It's a lot harder to recommend to someone if you're not that kind of person. Not so much because it's bad, but rather because it just kind of is. The animation is read more

(4/10 is a good score for me, see my profile)

Wonder isn't particularly visually mind bending, in fact I imagine anyone watching this has seen similar blobby animated doodles in the past, either as little animated gifs or as more properly realised flash animations on Newgrounds or someplace like that. It isn't boring, but since I am such a visually minded person when it comes to film criticism I was naturally drawn to the mechanical process of the movement, and in that respect the film doesn't blow me away. It's merely quite pretty.

What distinguishes this one is that it's hand drawn and that it was made read more
