Quotes

Reggie Watts: This is Green Dragon. And it will Augmenta your experience. Do you see how the mind is receiving consciousness, rather than creating it? It's as if the brain is an operating system. And built in to that operating system are a series of glitches. If you think of life as a closed system, and you divide a line and then shift it, then you've got a spiral. And we're afraid of spirals. Definitely more comfortable with loops. 'Cause you know where you're gonna end up. You know?

Couldn't Care About the Characters Here
17 June 2016 | by larrys3See all my reviews

There's plenty of sex, drugs, nudity, explicit language, and Augmented Reality fantasies here, but if you're looking for any characters you can care about you may very well come up empty handed. Shot in black-and- white, to be fair there is some humor and satire that emerges every so often, but it never stays on a steady enough path to sustain itself.

Benjamin Dickinson stars here as David, as he also directed the movie and co-wrote the screenplay with Micah Bloomberg, an advertising exec who wins the Augmenta account for his agency. They specialize in Augmented Reality glasses and David volunteers to try out the product so he can prepare his marketing campaign. However, he begins to find the trips into Augmented Reality much preferable to his fast crumbling personal life.

All in all, there's a few things to like here but they're outweighed by pretentious and unlikable characters, so that by the end of the movie I really didn't care what happened to any of them.
