Andrew Nichol, 1997 (8.5*)
One of the most intelligent of the science fiction films, not actually based on shootouts or space battles but on stolen identity, DNA, bias, privacy, individualism. Ethan Hawke is a worker who seems to be hiding a mystery, and we later learn that he’s borrowing DNA from Jude Law, whose character is a paraplegic after an accident. Uma Thurman is around for romantic interest. Without spoilers, you’ll have to see this one to uncover the plot, but don’t expect a lot of action here, more of a mystery plot cloaked in a science fiction futuristic environment.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
