Critic Reviews for Simone
Niccol smartly contrasts the bland, blond beauty of computer-colored Simone ... with the brunet vividness of Keener.
Though at times the satire is over the top, Simone raises some interesting and troubling questions about the future of cinema.
An industry satire that's less funny than half-empty and hyper-designed.
You don't so much admire the movie as feel bludgeoned by its attitudes, however commendable they may be.
Audience Reviews for Simone
Its all Al Pacino's show in this Twilight Zone cousin wherein a toymaker's creation seems to come to life. I wished they'd've gone a few more steps than they only suggested (for instance, giving Simulation One some recognizable traits from some actresses to complete the illusion instead of the vacuous automaton we get), but Al still gives us a fun enough ride for the money.
Unusual for Al Pacino tot take on such a role of a slightly Comedic fashion, in a film that wasn't really really great. I like the concept of the film and it's obviously not an out of reach techology to perform, but I guess it sums up a lot metaphorically about celebrity and their followers too.
Pacino, film making & computer geekiness. LOOOL at the 5 inch floppy disk used! Havent seen this one in a long time
