Storyline

Berkeley record store clerk Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) begins to experience strange visions from an entity he calls VALIS that cause him to uproot his family and move to Los Angeles where he becomes a successful music company executive. With the help of best friend, science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick himself (Shea Whigam) and a mysterious woman named Silvia (Alanis Morissette), Nick finds himself drawn into a dangerous political-mystical conspiracy of cosmic proportions. The story is set in an alternate reality America circa 1985 under the authoritarian control of President Fremont, a Nixon-like clone (Scott Wilson). Written by Radio Free LLC

a must see!!!
25 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Simon did a great job directing and writing. I would recommend it to a friend. it is intellectual and it got me thinking. I can't wait for it to come out so all my friends can see it. Most of the actors are not well known but they did a great job and I hope this sparks something for there careers. I really cared about the characters.

Everyone involved in this project should be proud of themselves for the job they did. i think Philip K. Dick would be proud. I hope this is the first of many more to come. I wonder if Alanis is going to put out soundtrack? that would be really cool. I'm really glad that movie was under two hours and Simon didn't go on and on. I was intrigued throughout the film.
