Weird and Intriguing Story with Potential of Cult-Movie
20 July 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In an undefined society, the computer analyst Simon J. (Jeremy Sisto) has a paranoid behavior, compulsively buying milk and receiving mysterious empty packages in his apartment. Although having surveillance everywhere inside the building, there are some dwellers mysteriously dying. His next-door neighbors are Trish (Deborah Kara Unger), a nurse in a cancer hospital that practices kinky sex to feel alive; Derrick (Udo Kier), an inventor living alone with the company of an eerie robot head; and a producer of SM videos and games (Bruce Payne). The janitor of the building, Howard (Lance Henriksen) seems to be a friend of Simon. There is also the administrator of the building and Nile (Eugene Byrd), who brings deliveries with his motorcycle to his clients. Simon tries to figure out what is happening with him.

In a heavy and uncomfortable atmosphere and with bizarre characters, this Kafkaesque film is a weird and intriguing story with potential of cult-movie. Very open to many interpretations, without being conclusive, it is a movie that makes the viewer think about how far the huge corporations might go in their relationship with consumers to achieve their targets. The distance between people living physically so close without knowing each other; the lack of privacy; the exaggeration in the consume; all of these situations are pictured and highlighted in this very interesting film, which deserves to be watched more than once. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Um Ponto Zero" ("One Point Zero")
