Thanks to the incredibly awesome Sarasota Film Festival I get to see this on Saturday! I'm excited. It's directed by Satoshi Kon, who also did Millenium Actress, Perfect Blue and Paranoia Agent (which are all worth checking out -partic. Perfect Blue) and is a master at messing with audience's heads, and making the medium of animation work for him - he takes advantage of the things specific to traditional animation in a way that I haven't seen anywhere else. His work is definitely worth checking out for those of you that aren't familiar with it.
