Our take

Toying with the binary of gender, Tilda Swinton mutates into fashionable clones in Lynn Hershman-Leeson’s ironic reworking of the cyber thriller. As chic costumes and carefully curated sets amp up the hyperreal factor, this sci-fi romp stylishly anticipates the proliferation of digital culture.
