Storyline

Are we in fact living in a simulation? This is the question postulated, wrestled with, and ultimately argued for in the latest provocation from acclaimed documentary stylist Rodney Ascher (Room 237, The Nightmare) through archival footage, compelling interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a collection of cases from some of our most iconoclastic figures in contemporary culture.

Way to many Geeks.

This theory is a thing for me. I can grasp how we are living in this Sim, especially when you think about the alternatives. I'm mid 50's so have grown up with video games and CGI. I had a home Pong machine and Atari VCS. I also bought a Playstation 1 as soon as it was available. I now look at my son's PS5 games with the internet connections available in this day and age and conclude we are not far off realism. All it would take is an implanted chip/interface to make this happen. Elon Musk who appears in this film also sees this, although I'm sure he wouldn't want to be associated with it. A great shame, a little less geeks and a little more science would have made a far better film.
