I saw this film at Sundance, and think it is by far the best looking film I have seen there. The greatest thing about it is that you can really see the amazing artistic/creative ability of the filmmakers. Each shot is like a beautiful photograph, carefully chosen but not pretentious. The look of the film enables the viewer to have an "experience" of a future that is bleak. And I loved the choice of using retro looking phones/appliances, etc.--Rather than a bright future, I was certain this one was grim. Generally speaking, I am not a fan of sci-fi, but I did not feel like I needed <more>
to be for this film--I would not classify this film as sci-fi...but that's just my opinion.Although not everyone seems to agree that the story was worth telling...I disagree. I completely bought into it, and enjoyed it each step of the way.My only question is, why is this a straight to video release? It should be viewed in the theatre where one can really appreciate it's beauty.
Check out this Intriguing and unique film. (by daveyjune)
Have you ever left the theater with more questions than when you came in? Check this one out. One point O is a refreshing alternative to the Hollywood formula ..... beautifully shot and well directed, with a cast and dialog that is right on. The intrigue never lets up. The film was the subject of many Interpretations and discussions long after leaving the theater. One Point O is an all-too-realistic near-future portrayal of individuals becoming isolated and paranoid - eventually targeted by the ultimate corporate marketing ploy. This is truly a unique script! This was my favorite at Sundance <more>
This is one absolutely fantastic movie - I had to watch it more than once to read the newspaper articles shown in the early part of the movie - the main character, a computer programmer, can't quite complete a program code that he is supposed to write, since he seems to be slowly losing his mind - he is pressed to find out why this is happening i.e., "paranoia" - this movie is not only entertaining and suspenseful - but it also represents a well established fear of big biotechnology and other corporations' power and desire to control the minds of consumers, just to sell <more>
their products - this was quite impressive - I am expecting sequels and copy-cats to show up soon - the theme is right on point with today's market-driven economy - I noticed that there seemed to be an effort by the producer/director to block out any mention or hint of known consumer product brands of any kind, such as Intel/windows computers, etc. - it was difficult, if not impossible to decide when the storyline took place, e.g., in present-day, near present, or far into the future - this movie definitely merits further discussion
Cronenberg's "Videodrome" meets Arnofski's "Pi".Psychological and confusing like a Twilight Zone episode, technological and preachy like The Outer Limits, "One Point O" has a definite classic sci-fi feeling to it. The music and sounds of the movie are excellent, together with the grittiness of the close-ups, the camera angles, the dark environments and over saturated colors, the directors successfully convey the paranoid schizophrenic mood of the movie onto it's viewers.The acting was convincing, and most of the characters were very interesting, and <more>
well cast.Contrary to previous comments, this movie does indeed have a plot, and a great one at that. Granted, if you're not technically inclined, or have a short attention span, you may not get what's happening or just fail to see the plot entirely. So this movie is not for everyone, but then again, what movie is? Most male geeks aged 20-30 will like "One Point 0".The movie progresses at a steady pace, slowly giving the audience more information. At any point in the movie, save for the ending, the audience only knows as much as the main character knows. Some of the information conflicts leading to assumptions and more questions is it a video game? is it a conspiracy? is he insane? , but this only reflects the confusion the main character is feeling. I feel I should write more about this movie, but everything I have to say seems to be speculation, spoiler, or discussion. To sum up my review, "One Point O" is an awesome piece of environmental/psychological science fiction. The movie will keep you guessing while you're watching it and will leave you with questions when it's over.
Saw this creepy film at Sundance January of '04, and it was very effective at creating a claustrophobic yet outlandish Gilliamesque environment consistent with its theme, namely the pervasive and unchecked spread of embedded consumerism.Sisto delivers an increasingly out of control performance that is riveting to watch, and it's a kick to see Lance Henriksen play an off-kilter role like this, though I'd have liked to see it pay off with greater impact. Udo Kier is his usual deliciously kooky self, and Deborah Unger is gorgeously melancholy as usual. That's a good thing, though <more>
I'd really like to see this woman get a role she can break out with.The film takes a bit to work up a rhythm, but becomes genuinely unsettling for the better part of its running time, and it generates a number of uncomfortable and truthful laughs.All in all, it was a cool Sundance find, but I also know there's an audience out there that appreciates this kind of work Gilliam, PKD and other literate speculative fiction lovers , and I think they'll be more than satisfied with this debut from Renfroe and Thorsson.
Atmospheric, enigmatic, and well worth a thinking man's time (by NateWatchesCoolMovies)
One Point O is a strange, beautiful film, with a script so curious and engaging it stays in your thoughts and dreams long after the credits roll. Many of the questions asked by the film remain unanswered and concepts left ambiguous at the film's conclusion, and although this is not for everyone's tastes, I for one love this type of storytelling most out of all the narrative templates. There's nothing I love more than a difficult, surreal and challenging film that let's the viewer ponder what has actually happened. Jeremy Sisto is restrained and vague as Simon, the paranoid <more>
computer programmer who is having troubles with his fellow residents in the dank, dimly lit, creepy apartment complex in which he lives. Bruce Payne is hilariously weird as his rambunctious, kooky neighbor, and the always lovely and talented Deborah Kara Unger is great as a moody, messed up girl he has relations with. Lance Henriksen steaks the show however, as a philosophical bum/caretaker of the building. He is positively dynamic and electric in his role, and the very last scene with benevolent monologue is the kicker of the whole film.If you enjoy cryptic, open ended storytelling, unconventional casting and cinematography and an eerie, unsettling atmosphere to rival anything by David Lynch or similar filmmakers.
Dada meets Kafka meets Max Headroom (by arielisrafel)
"Paranoia will destroy ya " wrote the Kinks many years ago. The paranoia in this film well, you'll have to watch the film yourself to see what happens. Step into a grim, surrealistic world think Dada does Kafka where strange, unexplained things are going on. A mysteriously empty box that keeps appearing on the doorstep of Simon played by Jeremy Sisto, people dying under odd circumstances. Simon's world is dreary, dark, depressing and confusing. It is peopled by others who are as confused and zombie-like as he has becomeTrish, the cancer ward nurse played by Deborah <more>
Unger , who uses kinky sex to make herself feel alive after being around so much death, the inventor played by Udo Keir of a weird robot head, the peculiar custodian played by Lance Hendricksen. Their souls are being sucked dry by a culture that demands that they perform, conform, consume. The only character with energy in this soulless atmosphere is the Neighbor, a sleazy director of S&M porn games, played by Bruce Payne with his customary intensity and nuance. Why is he left out of the DVD credits?! His is the most memorable character. I second Brittmatt2005's excellent comments on the message board. .Though unrelentingly grim, it is worth seeing more than once. This Kafkaesque film is textured, with many levels of meaning woven into the surrealistic package. There are many messages to be extracted---the dangers of amoral corporations out to control and out of control, the deadening effects of a conformist society, questioning of the extreme measures people will go to to feel alive in a dreary world TV "Reality" shows, anyone? . By the end of the film, the mystery of the box is revealed. It is a trick that is, as Max Headroom once said, only "20 minutes into the future," a science fiction about to turn into science fact. Is this all a metaphor for what is going on now in our culture? See for yourself. This film, unlike the majority of sorry excuses for entertainment out there, will make you think.
Caught this at Sundance and HIGHLY recommend. Think you got it all under control? Think you know what you want and why? Think again. Who said film can't be fun AND have a point? Great idea. Looks amazing. And killer soundtrack. This thing stayed with me for days. Yeah, we've seen computers and programmers in sci-fi before. This is closer to home than you think if you know anything about nanotechnology or the machinations corporate America. But then, once, no one believed in the internet either. I loved this film. Easily one of my festival faves. Lance Henriksen rocked.
A computer programmer becomes infected with a nano virus, as people in his apartment building start dying he must try to find the upgrade before he becomes the latest victim (by filmbuffnerd9623)
I was one of the lucky ones that got to see the screening of ONE POINT O at the Sundance Film Festival. The directors have captured the corruption of mass media advertising through hypnotizing imagines and several overwhelmingly powerful performances.I highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to have a new, refreshing movie going experience.
