Beware Praises From Strangers (Especially If They’re From Someone With Ties To A Film)
I was conned by the praises. So I gave it a go (thank God it was free on Amazon Prime). This was the LONGEST 80 minutes of my life – it dragged even more than being at work with nothing to do, or stuck in an airplane on a runway when I can’t smoke.
This was a pretentious piece of garbage, most likely made by people fascinated with gazing at their navels. The characters were ALL obnoxious – there was no plot to speak of – and it has NOTHING to do with video games, expect for using clips from freeware games made in the 1990s.
God I hated this movie!!! Next time I will check the links of those praising films – it should have been a clue something was wrong by having all these 5-star ratings made within a month of each other.
Watch it is you wish – but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
A Well-Crafted Film
Full disclosure: I am not a gamer. Quite honestly, I haven’t played video games since I was a teenager.
But as far as PLATO’S REALITY MACHINE goes, that doesn’t matter whatsoever.
In fact, some of my favorite moments of the film occur during the video game sequences. Why? Above all, they are finely crafted. The combination of seamless editing, a soothing voice over, and stimulating graphics creates a hypnotic feel which works as a smooth transition to the various characters’ dating toils.
This virtual world is essentially more comfortable than the reality world. The reason being? Because we the viewer can relate to the dating struggles of Mr. Sorensen’s characters. The game of love can frequently be difficult at best.
The backdrop of New York City is a great setting, and the cinematography is beautiful. The film is well-acted, the score and music are engaging, and the editing is fantastic.
I look forward to seeing what Myles Sorensen directs next.
