Quotes

Agency Director: You think this guy Starker is nothing? You're right! He is nothing!He gets nothing out of life so he fixates on some trinket and decides it's precious. It's ridiculous. But it's dangerous. There are over a billion losers out there who all want to believe they're something. Some guy says he found the answer? That's how it starts. Religion. Health food. Aerobics. Pantyhose. Anything... Everything to distract them from the fact that they're bored, meaningless, impotent nothings waiting to die. ...

Interesting sort of cyberpunk adventure
6 June 1999 | by BarbecueSee all my reviews

In a very-near-future world, a corrupt government monitors everyone constantly with computers and surveillance. One man has managed to evade assimilation, and operates outside the system, fighting to preserve his freedom. An engaging and imaginative story and some very interesting editing and camera work. There are some confusing and slow parts, but all in all, an excellent example of what a small crew with brains and talent can do on a shoestring budget.
