Movie Info

Video game designer Allegra Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh) has created a virtual reality game called eXistenZ. After a crazed fan attempts to kill her, Allegra goes on the run with Ted (Jude Law), a young businessman who falls into the role of bodyguard. In an attempt to save her game, Allegra implants into Ted's body the video game pod that carries a damaged copy of eXistenZ. Allegra and Ted engage in a series of experiences that blur the lines between fantasy and reality.

    It is not easy to guess what is coming in this movie. The premise is interesting - when does a game become so real that you have troubles distinguishing reality and a game. I did not think Cronenberg's version had much thought to it. Whenever the plot got boring, another layer got added.

    Occasionally interesting ideas can't salvage the predominantly shaky acting, relatively lifeless script & characters, and inappropriately pedestrian (& stylistically dull) form of direction in this film.

    Certainly not Cronenberg's best.

    Existenz is about what one would expect from a late nineties, low budget, Cronenberg film. The first half hour is poor but overall, the film redeems itself and delivers on modest expectations. We get imagination, both paranoid and grotesque, and an eerie vibe that grows more compelling as the film progresses.
