This is one of my favourite SciFi-flicks. Its a about the mysterious dissaperance of the 12000 citizens of pleasure-island Sepulveda. Because of the suspision on alien abduction astronomy-professor Larsen (Karyo) is called in to handle the investigation. This movie has the sense-of-wonder element typical for hard scifi litterature and movies (such as 2001) whitout the dryness typical for that genre. It is lowtone wierd, with hypnotic female president of the world, psychadelicsusing general, genderless maniac organdealer, telephacy-cybernetics, a blue guard, swat-team uprisings and more.
