Movie Info

High-tech whiz Simon (Jeremy Sisto) is so suspicious he borders on paranoia, a neurosis made even worse when he chances upon a mysterious parcel left in his apartment. When he opens it, nothing's inside, which sets off a spiral of events that threaten his sanity. Soon after, he receives more similar packages, but is still unable to identify the sender. Is Simon going crazy, or is someone trying to drive him to the brink of madness on purpose?

Critic Reviews for Paranoia 1.0

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

  • A bit of Kafka, a touch of Orwell and Terry Gilliam and a whole lot of been-there- done-that.

  • Uma premissa inteligente que recebe um tratamento visual mais do que adequado pela dupla de cineastas estreantes, discípulos óbvios de Cronenberg.

  • Paranoia 1.0 has atmosphere in spades. Unfortunately, the plot and character development are about as thin as the atmosphere on Pluto.

  • While the story is very original combining the techno-edge of The Matrix with Orson Welles' The Trial, it's the mood and atmosphere where it really shines.

  • Good, fun, dark, Midnight Movie-type fun.

  • There's a lot of atmosphere to engulf an audience but it becomes tiresome, only to get really interesting again in the final scenes.

Audience Reviews for Paranoia 1.0

    Love that Kier and Hendriksen! What a neat film. A bit hard to get into at first, but these types of movies are my favorite. It fits in with Synecodoche New York and Stay as a movie that makes no sense at first, but it is all a neat allegory. This one is about a computer virus attacking a anti virus software in a computer, yet told via characters in an apartment building.

    I like Jeremy Sisto coz he's totally awesome and that's really the only reason I watched the movie. But it was gay. Nothing seemed to happen and should really have been a short or something coz it just seemed to be filled with people talking really quietly and Sisto drinking milk.

    moody, atmospheric, retro sci-fi....keeps you wondering...acting by cast is enjoyable...this dark, dreary tale is original and supposedly part of a trilogy(think 'the game' mixed with 'the matrix') posits the question: what if a computer virus affected your brain? movie itself is open to interpretation...you really need to view more than once and read the imdb board to get a clearer picture
