Director: Kathryn Bigelow
1995 / 145min / 35mm
Bigelow followed the blockbuster success of Point Break with this cyberpunk noir, a box-office disappointment that would attract a new generation of admirers with its high-style approach to a prescient script involving police violence, hip-hop prophets, and the dangers of digital-era voyeurism. Former Lost Angeles cop Lenny Nero (Ralph Fiennes) has moved into a more lucrative trade: the illegal sale of virtual reality-like recordings that allow users to experience the emotions and past experiences of others. It’s one of these bootlegs, depicting a real-life murder, that draws our antihero into a conspiracy involving abuse of power at the highest levels.
