I wanted to add some notes about the overall Animatrix experience. First off it is VERY different from what you might expect.
The first short film "Final flight of the Osiris" is a companion story to the new Matrix films and is rendered in stunning 3D, but many of the others are typical hand drawn anime, all have the Matrix theme but from different sides of the fence including a black and white detective story and the last one "Matriculated" that has some odd ideas and gfx but if you can get past that is very thought provoking.
i.e. what if to keep the machines in order we created the world of the Matrix to make them supplicants ?!
In other DVD news, I am finally watching Terry Gilliam's Brazil, which is an odd mix between Catch22 and 1984, with the humour and mode done brilliantly.
I had to fight with Mplayer,Ogle,VLC before I finally got a working DVD player in the form of Xine, which works AND has DVD menu support !!
As I type it is fast forwarding to the point where I stopped watching it yesterday, as there seems to be no GOTO option this taking a while :(
Drat! now I can not get it to play again at proper speed, I will have to run it for 35 mins and come back, now stupid !!
Wait the slider hidden in the middle lets me select on a pixel of movement equals 5-15 mins I can watch it at last....
Wow! great film, nothing more to say about it really other than YOU NEED THIS DVD !!
