How Sad and Hopeless Can You Get
28 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jeffrey Jones plays a research scientist who has a debilitating illness. He can barely walk with two crutches and he is obviously terminal. He is doing research into the transfer of the brain to computers. He has done this successfully with chimps but it will be some time before it can be done with humans. Since he has a death sentence, we know what's coming. He's going to put his brain into his Apple IIe or whatever it is. They take his body away, but his face and his thoughts appear on a viewing screen. But what happens to the rest of him? His emotions? His fears? His love for his wife who has been a steadying influence in his life? This asks significant questions but is trapped in a twenty-three minute segment. There needed to be so much more character development as well as a look at what is happening to him as he lives in disk memory. It all happens too fast and, hence, the results are inadequate.
