"Ill stop drooling and say, watch it."
5 stars

Thank god! a female director that can make a dark, violent and meaningful film as well as any man!

Katheryn Bigalow has now proven herself to me as THE female director for film. This is a damn sexist industry and I hope this can be a testement to women saying, what you can do, I can do better!

This film is superb.

Basically a paranoid look at the close of the millenium, where others experiences are entertainment to people who can experience them at the touch of a button. No longer are your fantasies just film, but now you feel you are the person filming it with signals directly transmitted into the brain, to quote;

'This is life, yeah a piece of somebodys life. Your there, your doing it, seeing it, hearing it, its like TV only better'

The dealer of these black market films is Ralph Fiennes, who excels in performing. As does the rest of the cast.
The film is well plotted with its realistic though exaggeratedly paranoid look at the millenium, its well scripted, and superbly directed.
The music to me also plays an integral part in this film, and it is cool.

Ill stop drooling and say, watch it.
