The near future: eXistenZ is the ultimate game, brainchild of the hip, hyper and sexually alluring Allegro Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Once downloaded via a bioport implanted into the players' spine, eXistenZ promises an experience that will shatter forever the line between fantasy and reality. At its launch armed fanatics burst in, determined to destroy the game and its creator. Forced to run for her life, Allegra's sole ally is a young security guard (Jude Law). Together they seek refuge in the only place the gaming goddess feels safe - the world where existence ends and eXistenZ begins.
How did this one slip under the radar? A movie about an absorbing computer game which is so impactive it is hard tell when you are in it or not, due to its biological AI link to your nervous system and brain. Fascinating idea and also a send up of all those geeks who live for gaming. Get a life? Well in this game your life is in danger!!
Exciting, surprising and a gem from the master of the elevated B movie.
Remember Video Drome, Scanners or maybe They Live? Tremendous entertainment and also nudging you to think about social issues via horror fantasy: brilliant film a must see. Stella cast too.
