Mutafukaz

Based on a trendy French comic book, this madcap adventure from Shoujirou Nishimi and Guillaume "Run" Renard is an international hodgepodge of Japanese animation, French moodiness, and a dystopian setting based on Los Angeles. The hero, a mouthy twentysomething with an alter ego composed of dark matter, and his pal, whose head is a flaming skull, flee a pack of shady characters called the Men in Black. As in video games, the action is lurid, hyperkinetic, and gruesomely violent, with nods to Grand Theft Auto and a comparably infelicitous treatment of the few women characters who show up. But the visual style and narrative are imaginative, and there's enough social commentary to give this silly caper some weight. Dubbed in English.
