I just stumbled across Renaissance in a sidebar ad, and the noir animation really caught my eye. I tinkered with the trailer and DVD clips, the game, and browsed some of the photos in the gallery, and this really is a gorgeous piece of animation. The black almost overwhelms everything, but if you just sit and watch, your eye really does catch all the details and everything is fluid. It looks like a comic book come to life, even more so than Sin City did.

It looks like it came out on DVD today. I’m going to have to hit Best Buy and pick up a copy. Right after my trip to Borders for a copy of Crooked Little Vein.

This may turn out to be a decent summer of oddball entertainment after all.

    I’ve been waiting for this since last year when I saw the trailer. I was pissed when it only played once in Chicago and I missed the showing
