Yet another art film with similar animation and style
31 October 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

FREE RADICALS has very glowing reviews and I have to dissent. Having seen many, many animated shorts and experimental films, when I saw this film I thought "oh no--not ANOTHER film like this!". That's because I've seen lots of films with simply drawn images (often scratched into the film) dancing to the music. With films such as FREE RADICALS, A COLOUR BOX and HARPYA (among others) in this style, you certainly CAN'T call this film original or ground-breaking. It's just one of several and after seeing one or two, I can't stand the thought of watching more.

Overall, it's interesting if you haven't seen anything like it, but otherwise I can't see the point. Plus, if you show it to kids, they're likely to balk at seeing the film--even though it is only five minutes in length.
