when I worked in a video store I had a shift with a crazy person who had horrible taste in movies. he put this on in the store after The Naked Gun had finished playing so that we could "watch something good for once"
It has moments of greatness, but I don't think it quite comes together as a whole. Like all of Andrew Niccol's movies S1MONE deals with big ideas, but unlike he did with The Truman Show and Gattaca Niccol isn't quite able to anchor his ideas into a persuasive screenplay. Still, I think it is worth watching at least once because it is ambitious and unique.
A masterpiece that can only be truly understood by advanced humans, humans like Sim0ne. I wish I were kidding. Pacino, and Keener give great performances and we also get one of our first looks at Evan Rachel Wood. I particularly liked the scenes at the Oscars and the movie clips played at the Oscars. Elegant satire.
