beautiful postmodern art animation by peter chung, mixing up the 'idea' of alexander, scientific mysticism (i.e. museum of jurassic technology), the study of charisma, distinction between knowledge and wisdom, all integrated into one coherent narrative that require the brain to function to watch. i agree with the reviewer on aeon flux, if you liked af's non-linear experimental narrative you'll like this, there are similarities, especially in first few episodes when peter still seem to be in control of the production (some voice actor changed midway?). Finally friendly advice to the self-proclaimed literal, things-are-only-as-they-are and i-watch-movie-just-to-relax-and-not-to-use-my-brain people - respect your well known limits and rent something straightforward (a disney movie maybe?) for a very relaxing evening of brain vacation, you deserve it. On the other hand, if you ruthlessly seek out creativity and can't get enough thinking from your boring work, this might delight.
