Movie Info

A lonely unicycle sits in the back corner of Eban's Bikes dreaming of the one day that a talented clown might walk into the shop and recognize its potential in this Pixar short that found animators dealing with such challenging issues as rendering nighttime scenes and creating realistic rain. When dreams of stealing the show from his juggling sidekick give way to the sound of raindrops falling just outside the window, the forsaken sale item is forced to face the realization that he may remain unsold for some time to come.

This was so depressing, it made me feel so bad. The only problem was the dream sequence was a little to long. 3.5/5

Red's Dream is a decent enough short film from the early days of Pixar, it certainly isn't their best short in terms of story, but you can see throughout each of their shorts leading up to Toy Story how their animation improves, and the technology slowly gets better. This short isn't bad, but it doesn't reach the same heights as things like "Tin Toy" or "Luxo, Jr."

This movie, at the time of writing, currently ranks as one of Pixar's lesser known efforts. The reality in which our protagonist lives - as reflected in the colourlessness of the bicycle store - is cruel and harsh, and subjects him to constant negligence from those around him . The 3D animation quality is nice enough - that clown does look pretty grotesque and chunky I'll admit, being Pixar's first real attempt at an organic character, and a telling sign of their current lack of expertise in this particular field. Above all, Pixar are capable of making me actually care about such everyday inanimate objects as desk lamps, tin toys, miniature snowmen and unicycles - and that has got to be worth something.
