Simulacron 1 is a highly advanced project, designed to elevate conventional computer technology to a new level by creating a virtual reality inhabited by computer-generated people or 'identity units'. When the head of the project dies mysteriously after showing signs of mental disturbance, Dr Stiller becomes his successor. As he begins to probe deeper into Simulacron, the line between the real and virtual world becomes increasingly blurred and his own existence is questioned.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's acclaimed science fiction classic has been hugely influential, with themes that would later be explored in films such as The Matrix.

Excellent

Quality release from Second sight. Very interesting sci fi film, that very few people seem to have seen. The US has a criterion edition of this, but I think the UK second sight edition is on par if not improved upon that release.

World on a Wire... stunning boxset

This is a fantastic sci-fi film, lovingly restored and presented in a sturdy slipcase accompanied by a book. Highly recommended for all world cinema and sci-fi fans.
