FANTASTIC
12 May 2004 | by jediraiderSee all my reviews

I watch this film over and over again and never get bored. It's so dense with so much going on that you find something new everytime you see it. Cunningham and James are a fantastic team. I would love to see the rest of this film since what I saw was only an installation. The film is simply one shot from what looks like some sort of monitor in a recording studio. And in this shot is a robot monkey with 6 human arms and two human legs. These dormant appendages spring to life and immediately kick in with one of the Aphex Twin's amazing drum and bass beats. I can't stress enough on how fantastic this movie is. It's just so much fun to watch. GREAT GREAT STUFF!
