World on a Wire Reviews
(2011) World On A Wire
(In Germany with English subtitles)
Four hours long divided into two parts, which was initially a 2 part mini-series for German television back in 1973, written and directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder starring German veteran actor Klaus Löwitsch as Fred Stiller getting involved with the mysterious death of his co-worker, Henry Vollmer (Adrian Hoven) and the disappearance of his friend, Günther Lause (Ivan Desny). And as it turns out, it's something to do with a computer, the company that's financing the project, called IKZ is involved in which has the ability to create another alternate universe, dictating stocks and bonds.
"World On A Wire" is also another movie that is the basis for "The Matrix" and "The Thirteenth Floor" to name a few. A film, I have to agree with other users that it's way ahead of it's time since back in 1973, many people still didn't know what a computer looked like, let alone know how to operate one.
3 out of 4 stars
