Bill wakes up from a coma in a hospital ward, raving about tissue regeneration experiments, final injections, organ transplants and having been cryogenically frozen. Battling flashbacks of his father's death and a car crash, occasional hallucinations and fits of rage he tries to piece together his own history with the help of Ann, a lonely medical psychologist sent in to evaluate whether he should be released. In their confrontational, sexually-charged sessions, Bill flip-flops between pitch-perfect self-diagnoses and his paranoid bio-tech fantasies, but slowly begins to heal. But things are not what they seem.Written by

Don't understand why people and critics gave this movie such low ratings. Being difficult to follow and having a non-cathartic ending does not make a movie bad. This is a David vs Goliath (individual vs the medical institution) movie in the story line of "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest". Granted, not a stellar theme and supported by good, not great acting sans Jack Nicholson, it is nonetheless an engaging movie in a sort of Hitchcock fused Bergman vein with a twist of neo-Sartrean Existialism to the end. If your attention span exceeds the Seinfeld scene and you are not on Ritalin, this one challenges the viewers to stay focused and rewards them commensurately. Even though this movie had a $100,000 budget to work with, I found it entertaining, engaging in the Masterpiece Theater tradition, and rated it 8 on a 10 scale. Keep your eyes on this director.
