Awesome movie, but no-one knows about it.
11 October 2004 | by (Iowa, where we do have civilization...) – See all my reviews

When I looked and saw that this movie had only been rated by 49 people, I was surprised. I mean, the music is genius, the animation was way ahead of its time, and only 49 people in the universe care enough about it to review?

Man, are the people of the world missing out. Thomas Dolby is a musical genius, and the people who did the animation spent loads of hours on their pieces. I think this movie deserves more than what it is getting.

I first remember seeing it when I was in third grade. My mother was the head librarian at that public library, and I was nuts about the 1st mind's eye. She finally just bought that one and this one for me so I'd quit checking them out... o_Ox This is definitely worth your time.
