Sita Sings The Blues

Finally got around to watch "Sita Sings the Blues" directed by Nina Paley.

Found it very refreshing, entertaining and really different from any animated film shown in cinema's nowadays. It's an animated musical romance film roughly based off the Ramayana and interlaced is a small fragment life story of the director, Nina Paley. Stylistically its a hod~podge of 3 styles; 2d flash, 2d drawn on cintiq, and cutout animation. In some ways feels a bit like a Ralph Bakshi's film minus the vulgarity.

The 20's, 30's blues music used in this film was sung by the radio star ~ Annette Hanshaw (1901 ~ 1985)
