This exhilarating animated reverie from Slacker director Richard Linklater and animator Bob Sabiston is an amazing thing — a work of cinematic art in which form and structure pursue the logic-defying (parallel) subjects of dreaming and moviegoing. Dazed and Confused player Wiley Wiggins stars as a young man who floats in a dream state, depicted in a ribbon of rainbow-colored computer-enhanced images. The result is a thrill, a trip to a fabulous new frontier. If you blink, you’ll miss something amazing.
