The story line was alright, but I don't think there was single part that wasn't overloaded with symbolism. I'd say it was over done, but that's just my opinion, of course. Animation was poor, but I'd assume it was meant to be as it is, to convey the appropriate image. Ending was a bit dramatic, too. Though, I don't quite understand how the story led us to the ending. I thought you said that he was rejected at the gates of the afterlife, yet he still lies dead..? Andwhen did he die in the first place. Was it alcohol poisoning? Overall - 7/10 and 3/5.
I just saw the movie "Across the Universe" an hour ago, by the way. That really has nothing to do with anything, though. Just thought I'd share.
