Video Review: 'The Gate to the Mind's Eye' (1994)

MPAA Rating: Unrated
EW's GRADE
C

Details Movie Rated: Unrated; Genre: Musical; With: Thomas Dolby

Judging by this tape's Blade Runner-a-go-go look, it would seem that synth-pop whiz Dolby took that ''blinded me with science'' shtick literally. An explosion of virtual-reality and sci-fi images accompanied by Dolby's atmospheric soundtrack, this tape is perfect for cyberschmoes or anyone who obsesses over comic books. And though it's cool for a while, eventually you feel like you're trapped in a video game. C
