This movie is just pure...I cannot describe it. I love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TB87PwTKJyc
The only way I can describe it is to say that you should just watch it.

I have that movie. Weird shit went down. Dude's with TVs for heads, freaking-looking human clones and giant catapillers, batshit insane.

In the Japanese original there was barely any jokes. It was an odd action movie with small pockets of comedy here and there. I think the dub makes it better. But that's my own opinion.

That reminds me I still have Redline and The Woman Called Fujiko Mine on the 'to watch' list.

I have to agree with Dejexa, the dub fits what's happening on screen way more than the original voices.
Being that this is Bogleech, here, have some of the crazy monsters who populate the space-prison where Dead Leaves takes place.

Dead Leaves is one of those great 2:00 A.M. Movies--for some reason, it just works better if you're running on brain-fumes. I don't think I could stand it if I watched it without a creeping, scratching feeling behind my eyeballs.
Also, I love the fact that for the most part, it seems like the prisoners are all as profoundly fucked up as they are mostly because they've gotten cloned to hell and back. At least, I thought that was the implication... it's difficult to say.

Yeah, they were human clones that came out all wrong. I think it was implied that their free will was considered a defect as well, which is why they were all "lawbreakers," probably breaking even incredibly stupid, petty rules that perfect clones have no problem abiding.

The first time around I'd thought that the idea was that the original prisoners of Dead Leaves were taken in some ridiculous amount of time ago, and in order to serve out the nightmarish sentences they'd received they had to be cloned time after time on-station, and with each "generation" they got more and more freakish.
I'm not sure if that's more or less disturbing than the canon.
