Cowboy Bebop

Watched the Cowboy Bebop movie on DVD this evening, and was mildly disappointed. The art was absolutely gorgeous, but the characters spent a little too much time just sitting around philosophizing (which hasn't been a problem in the serialized episodes I've watched). I prefer for films to communicate their philosophy through the story -- characterization, plot, etc. -- rather than just presenting talking heads. Must admit, though, that the art was impressive even during the talking head sections.

I'd been hoping to learn the answer to some mysteries that have been plaguing me while I watch the series on the Cartoon Network, but was disappointed there, too. For example, I'd been hoping to find out what the hell "Ed" is, but all I learned is that she is female. Well, that's something, I suppose. She seems to be some sort of rubber-limbed idiot savant. What the hell is wrong with her? Who the hell is she? Why the hell is she living with a bunch of bounty hunters and a short-legged dog?

I remain mystified.
