Description: On your marks -- get set -- GO! on the high octane, white-knuckle ride that is Redline, the most talked about anime of the year! Seven years in the making, the feature debut by director Takeshi Koike (of "Animatrix" fame) is a singular, assaulting stylistic triumph that leaves the state of stale, big-eyed cookie-cutter anime in the dust. In a distant future where the streets are brimming with aliens and the skies are ruled by soaring suped-up autos, pompadoured daredevil driver JP enters the race of his life, the illegal interplanetary Redline, where the stakes are high and the skyways are rife with danger. Hand-drawn (unusual in this age of computer-dominated animation), and with a relentlessly supercharged screenplay by Katsuhito Ishii (writer of the equally astounding Funky Forest: The First Contact), Redline revs up and doesn’t stop ‘til it crosses the finish line. Strap in!
