Storyline

After receiving mysterious empty packages inside his apartment, a young computer-programmer (named Simon) begins a personal investigation into their origins. This leads him to discover his odd and eccentric neighbors; an artificially intelligent robot-head, named Adam; a virtual-reality sex game; and a possible corporate conspiracy. As the story progresses, Simon's grip on reality becomes more and more tenuous, while his craving for Nature Fresh milk becomes almost unbearable. Is it all just in his mind, or is something more sinister happening here? Written by DSC_182

offbeat sci-fi thriller
7 October 2005 | by Jonny_NumbSee all my reviews

What begins as a paranoid gloss on David Lynch's "Eraserhead" (the central character is an antisocial loner in a fittingly creepy apartment complex) eventually unravels and stalls due to its own hyper-allegoric art-house pretensions. But for a while, it's an engrossing, unconventionally entertaining tale of a computer programmer (Jeremy Sisto) who receives empty packages inside his apartment...even after he changes the locks. While it's clearly a work of science fiction, the conceptualization of "the future" is presented in a minimalist manner–save for some complex-looking computer screens and virtual-reality scenes–that envelops the cerebral thriller elements quite nicely. In addition to "Eraserhead", it also bears some resemblance to David Cronenberg's more playful "eXistenZ," with a similar emphasis on the blurred line between hallucination and reality (metaphors abound), but the double- and triple-crosses the plot lays out eventually become tiresome.
