Quotes

Transient: You had the rise of the first Great Age and then a fall into chaos. And then a rise again: the Classical Age and then another fall: The Dark Ages. And then a rise again: The Renassance and right on into the Modern Age. And now we are on the brink of the fall that could end everything.

raw yet engaging
19 July 2001 | by (Bloomington, Indiana) – See all my reviews



When I first started watching this movie I thought it was a student film. It certainly has a raw quality to it in the camera work, the filmstock, and the acting/directing. But as I continued to watch I was intrigued by the story. Its basically The Matrix idea done on a students budget. But don't dismiss it! The computer work in the movie is particularly inventive. Keeping in mind that this movie was shot in 1988/89, the use of computers is intelligent yet trippy. The acting takes some getting used to. It's not slick and natural. It's more forced, but it ends up adding to the plot of the film. I have to say that the ideas used in this film are quite clever and would recommend a viewing to anyone intertested in 1984-esque themes.
