Free Radicals is another amazing Len Lye short
13 December 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Along with A Colour Box and The Peanut Vendor, Free Radicals is another highly exciting experimental animated short by Len Lye. Seeing chalk white lines constantly moving on a black background with African drums playing throughout makes for one of the most unique experiences I've ever seen in animation history. How is it I've never even heard of this guy until today when I looked up Cartoon Brew and there was an item about The Peanut Vendor (an early experimental stop-motion from the early thirties) that depicted a monkey and various uses of his tail. The item took me to YouTube which also had Free Radicals and A Colour Box and I was blown away by all three shorts! To anyone with a taste of the unusual, I suggest you seek all them out!
