Nicholas Van Orton is a very wealthy San Francisco banker, but he is an absolute loner, even spending his birthday alone. In the year of his 48th birthday (the age his father committed suicide) his brother Conrad, who has gone long ago and surrendered to addictions of all kinds, suddenly returns and gives Nicholas a card giving him entry to unusual entertainment provided by something called Consumer Recreation Services (CRS). Giving up to curiosity, Nicholas visits CRS and all kinds of weird and bad things start to happen to him. Written by
The most unrealistic attempt at realism, I have ever seen.
The most unrealistic attempt at realism, I have ever seen. The acting is flawless, unfortunately it's within a ridiculous plot that is not only depressing, but unrealistic to the point that it loses your attention. The ending is the worst part as it finally puts it all in perspective. The point of this movie was . . . nothing. Nothign was the point. I can't believe this movie was made, but moreso, I can't believe how much talent and effort was wasted in the process.
