YOU'RE THE GLITCHY LARS VON F***ING TRIER OF POKEMON
Stay alive and
Lars von Trier is a movie director who makes controversial and shocking, yet often very artistic and even sophisticated movies. He doesn't shy back from picking up themes that most movie makers wouldnt touch and he often pictures very dark and obscene moments in great detail. The majority of critics have frowned upon his work for a long time and many film festivals and cinemas outright refused to present his movies for a long time, yet he is critically acclaimed by a large number people for crossing boundaries of the film industry. For example, in his latest movie "The house that Jack built" he shows the personal development from an architect (named Jack) into a sadistic serial killer who brutally murders his victims (he is shown cutting of a womans breasts and killing children) and collects body parts in his freezer to build a house made of human flesh.
And while Pokemon Reborn is not entirely as dark and gory as this, I also appreciate the darkness of the early game and that it touches upon things which happen every day in real life, but which Nintendo would never put into a game. I think that makes Reborn a very relatable experience for many people. While probably unintended, it appears to somewhat mirror society.
