Storyline

After receiving mysterious empty packages inside his apartment, a young computer-programmer (named Simon) begins a personal investigation into their origins. This leads him to discover his odd and eccentric neighbors; an artificially intelligent robot-head, named Adam; a virtual-reality sex game; and a possible corporate conspiracy. As the story progresses, Simon's grip on reality becomes more and more tenuous, while his craving for Nature Fresh milk becomes almost unbearable. Is it all just in his mind, or is something more sinister happening here? Written by DSC_182

fantastic sci fi
29 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one absolutely fantastic movie - I had to watch it more than once to read the newspaper articles shown in the early part of the movie - the main character, a computer programmer, can't quite complete a program code that he is supposed to write, since he seems to be slowly losing his mind - he is pressed to find out why this is happening (i.e., "paranoia") - this movie is not only entertaining and suspenseful - but it also represents a well established fear of big biotechnology (and other) corporations' power and desire to control the minds of consumers, just to sell their products - this was quite impressive - I am expecting sequels and copy-cats to show up soon - the theme is right on point with today's market-driven economy - I noticed that there seemed to be an effort by the producer/director to block out any mention or hint of known consumer product brands of any kind, such as Intel/windows computers, etc. - it was difficult, if not impossible to decide when the storyline took place, e.g., in present-day, near present, or far into the future - this movie definitely merits further discussion
