IMHO Very good 80's movie about recording someones emotions and playing them back....

(Sporadic) Special effects are from Douglas Trumbull (Blade Runner, Close Encounters, Star Trek), who also directed the movie.

IMDB

You know, I went to see this film maybe 5 times in the theater. It 's great that way on a BIG screen, but watching it even on a good TV is nowhere near as satisfying. Trumbull (the director) used a special cinematic technique so that when the character was using the "brainstorm recording device" the screen image went from 35mm to 70mm (at least that's how it looked) and the sound got amplified and "spatialized" too. I tell ya what, in the theaters, this was AWESOME! When I watched it home, all the magic of that effect is lost.

The story is still pretty cool, although the angelic imagery at the end is a bit much. The movie also is bittersweet since it was Natalie Wood's last film before her tragic death (and boy, did she look hot in this film!). Good score by Horner too, IIRC.

OUCH!

I envy you, I discovered this movie by accident on VHS, later I bought it on DVD but the (non-anamorphic) image quality is very poor.

I would love to see this movie in the cinema, but perhaps the movie will be released on HD in the near future, so I can watch it at a big screen at home.
