Once the capability of tapping into “higher brain functions” is added in, and you can literally jump into someone else’s head and play back recordings of what he or she was thinking, feeling, seeing, etc., at the time of the recording, the applications for the project quickly spiral out of control. While Michael Brace uses the system to become close again to Karen Brace, his estranged wife who also works on the project, others start abusing it for intense sexual experiences and other logical but morally questionable purposes. The government tries to kick Michael and Lillian off the project once the vast military potential of the technology is discovered. It soon becomes obvious that the government is interested in more than just missile guidance systems. The lab starts producing mind torture recordings and other psychosis inducing material. When one of the researchers dies and tapes the experience of death, Michael is convinced that he must playback this tape to honor the memory of the researcher and to become enlightened. When another researcher dies during playback the tape is locked away and Michael has to fight against his former colleagues and the government lackeys that now run his lab in order to play back and confront the “scariest thing any of us will ever face” – death itself.
Plot: Two brilliant research scientists have invented a device capable of recording and playing back sensory experiences only to have devastating results when one of them records their own death.

Excellent science fiction
What are the boundaries of science fiction? This film explores them. Like the thirteenth floor, dark city or the matrix the film leaves a lingering uncertainty as to what out ultimate destiny or origin is. Good science fiction probes us and questions our limitations.
Strong ideas turn visual as scientists play dangerously with mind
Douglas Trumbull should make more movies.
The depiction of working scientists is quite realistic, with their obsessions, fears and friendships, and specially their effort to do research in spite of corporate rivalries.
Plus an almost Jacques Tati-esquire sequence of machines gone crazy.
Plus stunning visual effects of extreme motions and flight.
Plus a device that can record the soul in a golden tape and send it by phone: no doubt in that near future (we see a few very nice futuristic buildings) phone lines have very broad bands, but then… why do phone boxes seem to belong to 1983? Are they retro style? Plus concepts for a mature audience: the absurdities of sexual obsession, the danger of psychological damage in kids, a couple regaining mutual love, and interesting (in fact very classical) depictions of hell and heaven.
Plus Christopher Walken as the good guy (for once) and enigmatic Natalie Wood as distinguished scientist.
8 out of 10 A feast for the eyes that makes you think, too.
