Sita Sings the Blues-2008, voices of nobody anybody knows
Maltin says- Animator Nina Paley tells an autobiographical tale of how she was dumped by her husband and contrasts it with the epic Indian saga called the Ramayana. Three Indian shadow-puppet figures comment on the proceedings (not unlike Mystery Science Theater 3000), all of which is punctuated by the story's Hindu heroine breaking into song-in the appealing voice of 1920's pop singer Annette Hanshaw. Unusual melage of elements, including highly appealing visual design, makes this a disarming experience, and a unique animated feature. 3 stars.
I say- Had this in my Netflix queue, and it showed up as well as the next alphabetical movie and was happy I could knock another movie out of the book. I was really surprised by this, and really enjoyed the different animation styles. This movie, which was not released in theaters, is one of the best animated features I've ever seen. 3 and a half stars.
