Paranoia 1.0 (2004)
Critic Reviews for Paranoia 1.0
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.
Audience Reviews for Paranoia 1.0
I liked the concept, but the movie was too ambiguous and confusing, and the visual style was way overused. The Lynch/Cronenberg influence is a bit too obvious.
if someone like David Fincher had directed this and gotten real actors for it.... i dont know
This film struggles a bit to find its balance, spending the majority of time setting the pieces in place (in a purposefully unclear manner) only to then have it explained to us by the red-suited exposition courier. Once the ambiguity starts to become tedious the story then attempts to cure it by making broad and opaque brush strokes that are meant to be open-ended, except that they don't really ask any questions. Paranoia seems to be a film about inevitability then. This is what is "going to happen". And so we end up with a wholly unsatisfied feeling at the end since the preceding was devoid of cause or consequence, just an invisible corporate entity and the cogs that feed it. Even Simon himself has no leeway in changing who he is or the makeup of his environment. Nevertheless, this film has enough going for it in the richness of its characters and set design to make this a worth while view for sci-fi fans.
