This review is from: Franklyn [DVD]  (DVD)
This is a split personality story which divides its time between scenes set in the fantastical Meanwhile City which are quite stunningly well crafted contrasting with everyday scenes which could have fallen out of any TV soap opera. Now I do realise that said contrast is an essential plot device as the story deals with such themes as psychosis, synchronisity and the human condition in general but the joins are a little too visible and its worthy ambitions never quite gel for me. Also, if you've seen the trailers which emphasised Meanwhile City and pushed this as an epic fantasy you should be aware that, impressive as those scenes are, there are precious few of them.
