- Seconds review by Steve Mason
Four years after The Manchurian Candidate, director John Frankenheimer shot this, another conspiracy thriller. But instead of Government, this time he had the Corporations in his sights.
Rock Hudson, in his best screen performance, trades in his old life for new. A new face. A new job. A new personality. But while living this new, better, spiritually reborn life, he discovers some uncomfortable truths about the people who are providing it.
You'll guess the ending. But... this is a very satisfying slice of poker faced sci fi hokum with acid visuals, and plenty of sixties paranoia. A real head-movie. And not to be missed by fans of the conspiracy thriller genre.
