If you're looking for some supreme eye candy with a tiny futurism - this is the film for you. Iara Lee lets the topics speak for themselves as she probes the outer rim of future consciousness. Starts with the hyperreality of Japanese recreational parks - and ends exploring the idea of digital soul capture via brain scan. Curious about cryogenics? Cyber-sex? A.I.? This movie addresses them all - with a peppering of experts, artists and kooks. Some perfect ambient mixes deliever the soundtrack....
Whether concerning morphing one's body or instant environment through climate control and/or fabrication, this movie is extremely disturbing to a real humanist such as myself. The term transhumanist is IMO an oxymoron. Iara Lee's frightening movie wakes out of slumber the true person. The one line from Howard Rheingold (one of my fav VR theorists) that summarises the entire film is, "if the power goes off (one day) then we'll all wake up and see the hell we live in." (par.) Has a diverse cast, including VR pioneer Jaron Lanier.I rented this together with Machine Dreams, a movie solely about machines, AI, and the supposed coming merging of flesh and silicon that quotes folks like Marvin Minsky and a former NASA director. Both these movies present the danger to "meat," or our flesh. Jaron Lanier recently raised this trouble with his One-half a Manifesto on Edge.org, where he terms the simplification of the human being by "cybernetic totalists" (as he puts it ), who test the human as machine metaphor.This is the war of The Matrix vs art, poetry, music, nature - right now.
