Storyline

Col. Jason Halsey (USAF) has just had a terrible air disaster and can't remember a thing -- even his name. Now he must go head-to-head with the psychiatrist Dr. Gottlieb as his only chance to recover his memory. Col. Halsey is a stealth fighter test pilot in the highly classified project Black Magic. Is Dr. Gottlieb a helping professional or is he a counter-intelligence agent sent to debrief Halsey? This movie draws considerable footage from the Lockheed Corp. documentary "Blackbird: The Movie" for its background material on the SR-71 spy plane. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The first film to be originally recorded, mixed and mastered in pure digital sound, similar to a compact Disc with DDD sound. 'Fantasia (1940)' was also re-recorded in digital audio in 1982 and presented in digital sound in 1985 in two theatres in the US, but that was a dual system with the sound being on a special VHS tape and synchronized with the picture.

Absolutely brilliant!!
26 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a virtually unknown gem of a movie - thought-provoking, challenging, amusing and beautiful - what more could you want. The only serious problem with it is the lack of a release on DVD where the excellent soundtrack could really be made to shine.

Definitely not for those who have to be hand-held through a plot - this is a film that rewards repeat viewings. It's rich script and subtle performances keep it fresh and give you a little extra to spot each time round.

Films don't get much better than this :)
