Remember classics such as SILENT RUNNING, THE OMEGA MAN and BLADE RUNNER? Well, prepare yourself for OBLIVION - "the best Philip K. Dick story ... which Philip K. Dick never wrote!". The 2013 Tom Cruise / Morgan Freeman sci-fier from writer / dir. Joseph Kosinski (TRON: LEGACY) would slyly promote itself as a typical "hero's journey" actioner, then half-way in take a sharp turn into Philip Dick territory as a mind-bending and emotionally gripping examination of identity and self-identity within the framework of a domestic partnership; even tackling the seldom touched upon theme of true love vs. fate. Modestly successful in America (but a hit overseas), we invite you to take a detailed look at one of the most intelligent (and visually stunning) genre outings since the glory days of the 1960s / 70s. Includes film audio clips, excerpts from the score, commentary by Cruise, Kosinski, composer Anthony Gonzalez (of M83), archival commentary on the "Philip K. Dick" phenomenon by directors Ridley Scott (BLADE RUNNER), Paul Verhoeven (TOTAL RECALL) and more. WARNING! - CONTAINS SPOILERS! - CEJ
