Death to the demoness Allegra Geller!
This is one of the best movies in sci fi ever made. It drags in some parts but that lends to the lost reality it inhabits. If you liked The Matrix watch this.
Strange how The Matrix, The Thirteenth Floor, and eXistenZ, all came out in 1999, and all three seem to have looked at one another's scripts while writing them. All three are really good movies, but eXistenZ is the better mind-fuck. They would be great movies to watch back to back to back.
Now I'm starting to understand Nolan's inspiration for that infamous film of his...
