One Of The Most Amazing Films I've EVER Seen...
19 October 2017 | by meddlecoreSee all my reviews

Holy. F*cking. Sh*t.

This film is an absolute masterpiece, in both the realms of sci-fi and horror.

Not only is it one of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen...it's one of the most intriguing science fiction stories I've heard since La Jetee.

It centers around a man. A man with an extraordinary ability. The ability to manifest any object he focuses his mind on. And he wants to create life. Real, organic life.

His name is Steinmetz. And he's already managed a mouse...but he really wants to do a human.

And he's willing to try. But it might kill him. So he will only do it on two conditions:

1) complete discretion from the doctor he has personally chosen- Dr. Holst. 2) that the doctor perform brain surgery on him if he dies.

Holst refuses, and Steinmetz doesn't take too kindly to that.

He starts to manifest a doppelganger of Holst, and uses it to f*ck with his life. Particularly, interfering with his fiancée and career.

But the version Steinmetz creates is an improved version, with all the human faults removed. Not only is the doppelganger a better surgeon, he's more likable too.

And everyone begins to accept him as the real Holtz, while the real Holtz is painted as an imposter.

Holtz agrees to give in to Steinmetz, but Steinmetz doesn't need him anymore.

He has become obsolete.

The lead up to the ending is combined of two of the most logical possible directions, and a twist I personally did't think of...but, must admit, is damn brilliant.

Not gonna lie, after that final twist...I was really hoping Steinmetz was going to come back too...because he had said earlier, "even if my head explodes, the man you see before you will return to you". But, oh well.

This film is still absolutely perfect in every facet. One of the most visually stunning films I've ever seen shot in black and white. And a story that makes it one of the best sci-fi and horror films of all time!

An absolute masterpiece.

10 out of 10.
