An overlooked entry in the futuristic utopia mini-genre
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Norming of Jack 243 holds its own with 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and others of similar ilk ... at least in my faded memory. Unfortunately, any memory of it is distant at best considering the movie has long since disappeared from the cultural landscape. The central conflict is standard issue for films of this type, and just as the title suggests: individualism vs. conformity, the outsider vs. the central authority. I suppose there's a little Jack 243 in me, because I identified with the title character and his struggle against an overwhelmingly powerful system ... so much so that I never allowed myself to forget this barely remembered movie. It deserves to be seen again. Maybe someday it will resurface and someone can comment on it more meaningfully. Until then it remains little more than an answer to a personal trivia question: a surprisingly profound, and very obscure, memory from the 1970s.
