I feel like my overall perception of this movie will change over time. I'm still sorting out what I saw a few hours after watching it for the first time.
To start, Persona is visually striking. The lighting and framework make the limitations of it being shot in black and white to its favor.

Absolutely stunning animation and art design. Soundtrack that's as crazy as the plot. The wild ride never stops and it keeps getting more and more weird with every new plot point introduced but it totally works in favor of the movie. Nearly two hours long, but it all flies by with how absolutely fun the entire movie is.
Even if you find the plot stupid and too ridiculous, the art style and animation is seriously something spectacular.
