More Inventive CGI
2 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sequel to "The Mind's Eye," this computer-generated animation piece has some very inventive stuff in here. In this field, there seems to be a big advancement which was especially true in these experimental years in the late '80s and early '90s. I can't imagine what a 2007 version of "The Mind's Eye" would look like, but I'd like to see it.

This version featured some good music by Jan Hammer of TV's "Miami Vice" fame. Most of the visual material in this 45-minute presentation comes in short 2-3 minute segments, so if you don't care for something stick around because it will change quickly.

I enjoyed most of it and found it very creative, a couple of years after it had been released and liked it even more on the second viewing, some five years after that. It did not appear dated. Some parts of just stunning, real eye-poppers.

For me, however, watching animation with no dialog, is not easy to do for more than 20 minutes at a time so I broke this viewing into two segments. No matter how inventive it may be, your mind can wander after 20 minutes of this.
