#happy#30thbirthday to the #greatest#film of all time #anime or otherwise. #akira is one of the most outstanding pieces of #art I’ve ever consumed. It had a profound effect on my consciousness the first time I watched it back in 2001, and it continues to intrigue me after every viewing. It evolves untouched. As Akira ages, and I age with it, more layers are revealed. It sits on the shelf and I think I remember it, but as my perception of its subtleties change, it almost tells a different story every time. Please watch this.
