    Undone - Amazon Prime Original

    Stumbled upon this today and marathoned it (each episode is approximately 22-minutes in length, fwiw).

    While the rotoscoped animation isn't anything new (think Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly), it is trippy and disconcerting and lends a sense of off-kilter unreality to this story, which is a glorious pastiche of myriad genres ranging from melodramatic soap opera to whodunit to strange ancient religion tinged sci-fi.
    The coolest aspect of Undone is that it is sublimely unhinged, leaving the viewer constantly off guard and never really knowing where things are going.
    And the ending is fantastically abstruse; it leaves interpretation completely up to the viewer, which is something that doesn't happen very often these days in films, television, or even literature.
    I just hope they don't ruin it by making a second season where they feel the need to explain everything away and thus destroy the ambiguity and mystery the story built up..

    Rosa Salazar and Bob Odenkirk?! Oh yes. I am DEFINITELY in for this one. Always loved rotoscoping, so this should be a fun one.
