Dragging Myself to 400 Anime: Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Space

I find it hard to improve on D. M. Dutcher’s brilliant review of this weird movie.  (Click here to read it.) The story occurs in a futuristic setting where one company, CATTY & Co., has gained a monopoly of almost all the products on Cat Earth.  Tamala becomes bored with Cat Earth and seeks here home planet, located within the Orion constellation.  She gets shot down by an evil postman spy of CATTY & Co. before she can reach her destination, leading to her adventures in Hate City.  These involve a young cat named Michaelangelo, a perverted police dog, a zombie professor, and a certain goddess with a squid tattoo.

The version I found did not have English subtitles, though one can find Spanish and Italian subtitles for Tamala 2010.  The snippets of dialogue I understood did little to illuminate the macabre and violent action of the film.  The main reason I wished to see it was because D. M. Dutcher’s review intrigued me–just as the film’s title intrigued my readers.  Despite how weird and nonsensical the movie was, Tamala 2010: Punk Cat in Space still managed to be better than Cat Soup and X: the Movie; so, I rate it thus:

Somehow, the Cat KKK makes an appearance.
