I liked this movie though probably not everyone here will. It might be
a bit depressing for some (especially those facing old age). It's sort
of an anti-Hollywood film though done in Hollywood. Robin Wright plays
herself as an aging actress who is offered a contract to be digitized so
that her likeness can be used in any movie the studio wants. The catch
is she is never allowed to act again. The studio head is played by
Danny Huston and her agent by Harvey Keitel. This is also a film about
automation and robotics taken over and how the public is kept in a
drugged stupor. A good part of the film is animated to display the
illusory world that the public and Wright experience. There are lots of
famous figures in the animated world including even some deities such as
Ganesh and Shiva. Jon Hamm plays an animated character she meets.
The film got an 8 minute review on ..... Infowars.com. They liked it
but thought it could have been more entertaining. Guess I would have to
rate it Not for Salyavin though he actually might like it.
