Why I picked this film: I chose this film because it came up in conversation a few days ago. We were having some pillow talk about being able to re-live your memories. I saw this once, a long time ago, and that's really the only thing I remember about this flick. I'm looking forward to re-visiting this one.
Beeps: This movie was written by James Cameron. That's really all I need to say for you, the reader, to get an understanding of the social commentary that this film brings out. It's truly a masterpiece of cinema that explores the depths of human depravity from multiple angles and sources. What I love about this film is the idea of the drug of the future... To be able to record your memories, to relive them with all the same feelings, to share them, or sell them. The ability to pop in a disc of someone else's memories and get all the rush, adrenaline, feelings, thoughts, emotions associated with busting through a convenience store with a .357 magnum in hand. Not your taste? Maybe you'd like to experience having your way with a woman? A man? 2 women? It's funny though, this drug of the future, (although 1999 is no longer the future) and its trade, isn't even the central piece of the plot. The movie truly is like a parfait... so many layers, and all of them delicious. 4 1/2 stars.
