Storyline

Amber city is the last city on earth with a breathable atmosphere. In this climate of fear and paranoia, Isan Epel finds herself trapped by her employers, Schilman's inc, after working in secret for two years. Without any memories of her past, she hides in order to escape from her pursuers, and tries to disclose the content of a mysterious microdisc. The narcotic agent Phil Comb is then hired to find her and the disc. But he is too damaged by the drugs he consumes, and loses more and more contact with reality while he begins to understand the machiavellian conspiration around him. His meeting with Isan is going to reveal to him much more than he could have imagined... Written by Anonymous

Fresh and cool
24 July 2005 | by saraheilmannSee all my reviews

Some words to describe the vision of this strange feature: dark, depressing, colorful, short but tensed, sometimes cheap but never boring, complicated but understandable, funny, cyberpunk, electronic, alternative, underground, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes impressive... A lot of contradictory feelings, but this is what makes it interesting. Some will hate it, some other will love it. One thing is certain though: if you want to be 100% entertained and you don't want to think for a second, see "National Treasure", but stay away from this film!!

But I must say, although the universe described in the film is very imaginative, what I really enjoyed is the universe of the DVD itself: an interactive soundtrack, an exclusive Aphex Twin music video and a hilarious short film ("Milkman" and "Cryo", both made by the same director as the film), which represent a perfect continuity of the feature. If I had to see "Lies inc" on theater without all these "add on", I would probably have given a 6... Check it out without expecting too much: it's fresh and cool-
