In a hellish future where human beings have become stupefied by the state of permanent happiness they have been genetically altered to experience, Jack (Peter Scanavino) offers relief via drugs that cause his customers the welcome phenomenon of pain.

To say the least, "Zenith" is challenging and elusive; it evokes a bleak view of the human condition and a sense that pervasive paranoia might well be justified.

For traditionalists who prefer their movies unfettered and non-interactive, "Zenith'' happens to be pretty good, though it's longer on style and atmosphere than clarity of storytelling.

While Zenith is fascinating to contemplate as a concept, it doesn't fully work as a piece of entertainment-at least not in 90-minute-movie form.

This bewildering collision of noir narration and purple paranoia may be long on atmosphere but is woefully short on sense.

Smoothly incorporating influences as diverse as Philip K. Dick and Terry Gilliam, Zenith commands attention and builds suspense by taking inventive detours through familiar territory.

A brooding science-fiction trip enjoyed largely as a monologue. Luckily, Nikolic's lust for paranoid desperation is powerful, and his way with actors is stunningly graceful.

Zenith doesn't always work, but at least it has interesting ambitions, including some sort of parallel existence on interactive websites.

Zenith is a genre-bending experiment that needs an extended beta phase before going operational.

The film's messy pacing ultimately undermines the frequently enthralling themes at play, and the indescribably odd ending only sends the viewer off more confused.

Not everyone likes having to think while watching a movie, but viewers who do will find plenty to ponder in this twisty maze of facts that sound like fiction just a hair stranger than the truth

Audience Reviews for Zenith

In the near future, life is so easy and pleasant that people seek out illegal drugs that cause pain; meanwhile, a drug-dealer uncovers tapes made by his ex-priest conspiracy theorist father that suggest something called "Zenith" is controlling society. Some good, interesting ideas but the execution is so confused that the movie never gets in a groove, then skips the track entirely with a tired twist ending.
