World on a Wire

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's long-lost 1973 sci-fi film (originally a German TV mini-series) returns with a brand-new digital restoration. In this "The Matrix before there was The Matrix" flick, a cybernetic engineer tries to uncover a massive conspiracy centered around a computer project designed to simulate all of reality. When the bodies start falling, our hero quite rightly starts to question what is real and what is not? The style is super '70s, but the speculative fiction is way ahead of its time. 205 minutes
