A great high-concept story about the fetishizing of celebrity and the rotting of our cultural mores. Great acting in the lead, unsettlingly creepy, beautifully shot, and yet...somehow tediously slow. It was nearly a waste of such a cool sci-fi concept. It felt almost overly-explained, which is the opposite problem most sci-fi flicks have. Cronenberg Jr did well in his debut however; a bit more palatable than his father, in my opinion. Worth a watch if you're patient and looking for something heady and moody.
