After receiving mysterious empty packages inside his apartment, a young computer-programmer (named Simon) begins a personal investigation into their origins. This leads him to discover his odd and eccentric neighbors; an artificially intelligent robot-head, named Adam; a virtual-reality sex game; and a possible corporate conspiracy. As the story progresses, Simon's grip on reality becomes more and more tenuous, while his craving for Nature Fresh milk becomes almost unbearable. Is it all just in his mind, or is something more sinister happening here? Written by DSC_182

A Gorgeous Film
11 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Sundance, and think it is by far the best looking film I have seen there. The greatest thing about it is that you can really see the amazing artistic/creative ability of the filmmakers. Each shot is like a beautiful photograph, carefully chosen but not pretentious. The look of the film enables the viewer to have an "experience" of a future that is bleak. (And I loved the choice of using retro looking phones/appliances, etc.--Rather than a bright future, I was certain this one was grim.) Generally speaking, I am not a fan of sci-fi, but I did not feel like I needed to be for this film--I would not classify this film as sci-fi...but that's just my opinion.

Although not everyone seems to agree that the story was worth telling...I disagree. I completely bought into it, and enjoyed it each step of the way.

My only question is, why is this a straight to video release? It should be viewed in the theatre where one can really appreciate it's beauty.
