Over the course of film’s history as a medium, few directors were able to craft a vast scope of influence and unbridled creativity despite a relatively small body of work. Satoshi Kon was such a director. Now, six years after his death, the legacy of Kon stands, despite having only made five films. Challenging the mediums of film and animation alike, Kon’s art still stands as some of the most influential and unconventional of the time. His clever and occasionally shocking uses of editing, visuals, and story often transcended expectations and genre and left what is sure to be one of the finest and most unique filmic legacies of all time.
