What was Martin thinking?!?!
31 March 2002 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

the great Martin Landau, of Ed Wood fame, in a hapless eighties turkey? Yes! This one is a weak "sci- fi" drama/ thriller about a mysterious organisation that actually runs the USA behind the government.

A solitary journalist tries to uncover the plot, but finds out that resistance is futile...

Some spectacularly weak directing and acting combined with a plot more or less directly stolen from Alan J. Pakula's Parallax View make this one the one to miss. Luckily it's actually a rather hard film to find.

One highpoint: for some mysterious reason the screenwriter has decided to use a VERY stereotypical African- American male as a comic relief in one sequence. Result is hilarious but quite what they had intended...
