WHen I first saw a preview portion of Sita Sings the Blues a couple of months before it hit the circuit, I knew it was going ot be a huge freakin' deal. When I finally saw the completed project, a malange of 1920s torch song, Hindi mythology, romantic comedy, and incredibly beautiful animation. The entire effect is marvelous, and the length of the piece, and how it works the entire length, is the marvel. Work this wide-ranging can be tiring, the way we see the story unfold along so many different lines, with so many different threads of aesthetic influence, makes this a masterpiece that I really believe will be placed onto the National Film Registry.
