Shadowy corporate entities and Hasidic Jews close in on Max, deeply interested in his new discovery and willing to do anything to get him on their side. These questions among others are never answered, which is why Pi is one of the most confusing films ever.
Originally released in 1998 to wide critical acclaim, Pi straddles the line between surrealism and psychological thriller as its protagonist descends deeper into madness. Bruce Willis plays a prisoner from a dystopian future who is sent back in time to gather information about a virus that is destined to wipe out almost all of humanity.
During a focus group showcasing the new technology, there is an assassination attempt on Allegra but she survives and is escorted to safety by Ted Pikul played by Jude Law.
After winning her trust, Allegra convinces Ted to delve into the virtual world in tandem with her to test the system’s efficacy.
The characters in Existen Z have an intimate, biological relationship with their virtual reality that manifests subconscious tendencies during the player’s experience… The deeper Ted and Allegra journey into this “reality” the less the audience can be sure of what is real and what isn’t, or for that matter, what they’re capable of controlling as opposed to what their combined subconscious intentions might be taking over.
Existen Z starts on flat footing and completely pulls the rug out from under you.
Jared Leto plays Nemo Nobody, the oldest human on an Earth filled with immortals.
Nemo recounts his 118 year life with a psychiatrist and a journalist, both eager and curious about life before immortality.Kontroll follows a dystopian future where the mostly subterranean population rides on rickety subways controlled by insane ticket takers that insist people always buy tickets, but likewise admit they hardly ever check to see if travelers have one.The movie is an impressive feat considering how effortlessly it juggles comedy, horror, and just plain weirdness into a truly singular vision from then first-time director Nimrod Antal.While both Twelve Monkeys and La jetée do hold thematic and narrative similarities, they’re wildly different in style, as jetée is told only through still photographic images.Director Terry Gilliam infuses Twelve Monkeys with a dark and whimsical atmosphere that feels markedly more grungy than his previous dystopian masterpiece “Brazil.”This movie is insanely confusing; chiefly because of the constant shifting of time periods, locals, and characters.At first glance, Existen Z may appear to be something like The Matrix’s creepier; body-horror obsessed little brother.
