One of the best (and also most underappreciated) films of the 90’s
“Strange Days” is a unique science fiction and mystery film. Set in Los Angeles during the last two or so days prior to the new millennium, the cast is helmed by Ralph Fiennes as the charming, brave, but shady Lenny Nero. Lenny is a former LAPD officer who loses his job for mostly unknown reasons. He then becomes a black market hustler who sells people’s recorded memories for profit. For the most part, these recorded memories are either violent or sexual in nature.
Angela Bassett does a great job complementing Fiennes’ “Lenny” character in her role as Macy, Lenny’s close friend who makes a more legitimate living as a limo driver and security specialist. Lenny and Macy soon become embroiled in a murder mystery involving corruption within both the LAPD and the music industry. This seemingly ever-deepening mystery also involves Lenny’s other close friend, Tom Sizemore’s character “Max”. Max is a private eye who, despite seeming to be very well-intentioned, is just as shady as Lenny. Juliette Lewis rounds out the cast as “Faith”, Lenny’s troubled and devious rock singer ex-girlfriend.
Besides the awesome and well-acted performances, what made this movie stand out to me is just how on the nose some of the background references are in it. References to an economic collapse, increasing gas prices, and strained relations between the police and minorities make this a very odd foreshadowing of the actual real-life future.
In conclusion, great acting, a very deep and interesting storyline, and great cultural references make this a very highly recommended film.
If this wasn’t one of the worst SF movies ever made, please send me the names of ones that were worse. I’ll avoid them assiduously. The plot, if you want to call it that, involves our hero, Feinnes, running around madly from party to party, getting thrown out of one place just to go back and get thrown out again. If you haven’t figured out “who done it” within a half an hour, try something a little less complicated, say Little Red Riding hood. The premise that by slapping on the mind meld machine, usually worn under a wig, is promising. Have an orgasm, vicariously. Why not? But the plot abuses the idea to the point it becomes ludicrous, along with the acting, which is at all times, ludicrous, except for Angela Bassett. She acts her heart out trying to make this laughable movie work. To no avail. The continuity is nonexistent. In the final scenes, people are beaten, stabbed, shot and go on like little has happened. A good part of the movie is spent driving around in a Taurus limo. You know that car’s gong to get blown up for sure. Who would use such a car unless they were on the cheap and didn’t want to blow up a Caddy or Lincoln. Juliette Lewis,the temptress, attempts to be seductive as she sings, but it’s more a tribal squat than a sexual gyration. Mr Feinnes, normally a fine actor, just looks either pained or pathetic as he tries to make us believe he’s having an epiphany while wearing the brain beanie. Of course, it’s hard to look post apocalyptic in 1995, when making a movie about 1999. We know what happened the night ushering in 2000. Nothing much. They have tired crews in the street, waiting for riots. The same poor people in the streets day after day. D’Onofrio’s death scene was totally unbelievable, but that fit in. This thing dragged on for 2 1/2 hours. There wasn’t enough substance for 30 minutes. Looking for a late night movie to put you to sleep? This will do the trick.
