Summary
The noir-spiked tale of a reluctant action hero, Fred Stiller, a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate conspiracy. At risk? Virtual reality. Originally made for German television, the recently rediscovered, three-and-a-half-hour labyrinth is a satiric and surreal look at the weird world of tomorrow from one of cinema's kinkiest geniuses. It's a gloriously paranoid, boundlessly inventive take on the future from German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder
