Escaflowne | Chicago Reader


The intricate spiritual life of a depressed young woman intensifies when she's invited to inhabit a fantastic reality she'd nearly dismissed as the product of her imagination. Some of the early scenes in this animated action adventure (2001) are piercingly evocative. But as the woman, who turns out to be a goddess, becomes enmeshed in a dispute over which of two factions has the right to a gigantic mechanical dragon—it's fueled by the blood of a warrior who wears it like a suit of armor—she falls in love and becomes blandly idealistic. Written by Ryota Yamaguchi and director Kazuki Akane, based on a TV series. 95 min.
