Strange Days

Now is the perfect time to revisit Kathryn Bigelow’s prophetic and visually stunning sci-fi noir about virtual reality in a world gone wild.

Great sci-fi never dates. Such is the case with Strange Days, in which underlying themes of social division and rapid technological advancement remain vitally relevant. It’s the final days of 1999. L.A. is being torn apart by race riots and rampant crime. The new personal entertainment sensation is a headset that plays pre-recorded material and allows wearers to feel like they’re having someone else’s experience. Sex, armed robbery…even committing murder. In the middle of this deadly business is Lenny Nero (Ralph Fiennes), a scuzzy tape trader who finds an ally in all-action armoured limo driver Mace (Angela Bassett). James Cameron’s intelligent story and Kathryn Bigelow’s powerhouse direction climax with the New Year’s Eve party to end them all.

A technical tour de force for director Kathryn Bigelow and her team. – Todd McCarthy, Variety

A visionary triumph. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
