Quotes

Board Member: So there are risks.
Ren Amari: Abuse of any substance is risky. Your brain is already firing billions of neurons a second. We're just giving them a script to follow. The software builds from fragments of your subconscious. It becomes part of you like any other memory. We tell you the story of a day, one day, where everything happens just the way it should. Perfect.
Board Member: No chance of it lasting any longer?
Ren Amari: None whatsoever.

A prove that you don't need big budgets to make good sci-fi
17 October 2017 | by timvandenbranden96See all my reviews

When I first saw an announcement for this movie I thought it would be just another sci-fi movie with a decent, but not that original story and a smaller budget. Nevertheless I decided to watch it and then I realized how much mistaken I was. This movie brings one of the more original stories I've seen in sci-fi the last couple of years. Combined with an excellent cinematography and good acting this movie lifts itself up. I know many people who don't like to watch movies with smaller budgets, mostly foreign movies, not produced in Hollywood, but then again, this movie proves you don't need to have the big budgets to get full potential.
