A brilliant SF espionage thriller where nothing is as it seems
on 22 January 2015
This is an intelligent and exhilarating SF film which immediately catapults us into the world of corporate espionage. Jeremy Northam is excellent as the mild mannered Morgan Sullivan who applies and succeeds in gaining a position at Digicorp, an advanced technology company. Digicorp assign him a new identity and he is sent to conventions throughout the USA to secretly record presentations. Just as he is beginning to enjoy his new identity Sullivan starts to experience recurring nightmares, and when he meets Lucy Liu's mysterious Rita the film really takes off as she introduces him to a rival company who also wish to hire his services. The dialogue and acting is marvellously restrained, and the cinematography and haunting music is pitched just right. This is a confident and assured piece of work which I highly recommend to watch, definitely more than once.
