There is a certain brand of affectation one is very familiar with if one has gone to film school. This rip-off of 1984 is a feature-length example of it. See, the main character is 'persecuted'. He has 'integrity' because he's trying to 'buck the system'. These clichés are emblematic of the movie's tired ideas. The result is a boring, artless film with structure problems and stock characters.
Speaking of which, the other big flaw here is actor John Tensch, who plays the villain, embodying the very definition of amateurish acting. If you can watch him for the entire movie without cringing so much that you become sick to your stomach, you are a strong, strong person.
The filmmakers obviously had no budget, which is likely why they shot in black and white. This would be fine, except that the lack of budget really hinders the film's attempt to make its audience believe that this takes place in the future. It merely looks as though it takes place in a warehouse (which it probably does).
