I saw this movie last week.  It was excellent.  Beautifully animated; but, not in a cartoon sense.  You'll have to see it to understand.    The movie played out very nicely and I highly recommend it!

I saw it last week too and I will add my recommendation. Without the animation the movie is not nearly as interesting (see the extra features for a sample), but some of the dialogue is really thought provoking (and some is just weird).

The animation was done with about 4 different artists with each taking a section of the film and painting each and every frame. 

I liked the physics speach about alternate universes most interesting, and the man in the prison most disturbing. 

There is one scene at a bar where the bartender and drunk are talking about an occurence where the drunk found himself threatened by a lunatic at a gas station, and had to kill him with his gun (i think that's how it went).  Anyway at the end the two agree that firearm rights are vital to a working democracy, and that their firearms do more good than harm.  The scene ends with the two shooting each other.  It made me wonder if most firearm catastrophies aren't to the owners of the firearms or their families.

I watched it in the class my debate coach was instructing. It was definately very intersting animation. Its also a good way to get some discussions started. I didn't really think any of the ideas/philosophies said in the movie really were all that persuasive, and i dont think i completely agreed with any of them. Interesting though. I liked it.

I loved this movie. The wave form, etc...in the animation effects,  was spectacular. It's as if the makers were trying to draw the watcher into the mind trip, that was the whole movie's message in the first place.

I look forward to adding it to my collection.
