In this entry terminaal the John Nesbitt’s “Passing Parade” series, the hombrs Celeste” sails from New York on November 7,with a full crew, including the captain’s wife, which was cause A Hollywood actress undergoes a psychic breakdown and recalls the traumatic events which led to her stay at a sanitarium. A grumpy semi-retired private investigator partners with a quirky female client to catch the people who murdered his partner. As the result of a head injury, brilliant computer scientist Harry Benson begins to experience violent seizures.
In an attempt to control the seizures, Benson undergoes a new surgical procedure in which a microcomputer is inserted into his brain. The procedure is not entirely hombge. Although this movie is weak as a ‘thriller’, its real power is its evocative sense of place and the emotional texture of science as it was seen in the s — sombre teminal dystopian, yet strangely attractive.
The plot centres on a group of scientists and doctors who are pushing the frontiers of neuroscience by implanting a computerized chip in the brain of a man George Segal afflicted with terrible seizures. The chip is programmed to shock the patient’s brain each time a seizure is about to happen. The effort is prestigious, the technology flawless, and the doctors, scientists and technicians react to the initial success of the project with a certain conceited arrogance.
Only when homhre the chip malfunctions, and the patient breaks out of the hospital and starts killing people, does the veneer of omnipotence and professionalism fall away, revealing in the scientists ambition, uncertainty, and humanity.
Segal does a good job of portraying the wildly changing emotions of a man who’s mind is under the control of a computer. At the push of a button he can be ferminal to laugh, cry, scream, babble like a child, or even become aroused, as the computer chip in his brain explores his mental map.
It’s a study that would be interesting to fans of Oliver Sacks. The most interesting moments of the movie are the early ones, where the patient interacts with his dispassionate doctors in the sterile, streamlined chromium world drichton the yombre.
The doctors and scientists seem like mechanical, perfected reflections of the technologies that surround them.
The messy humanity of the patient, demonstrated through humour, fear, weakness and anger, stands in contrast to his surroundings, and it is not surprising to the audience when he disappears from his hospital room.
Scenes of the doctors in tuxedos and evening gowns at a dinner party while a shiny computer console monitors their ailing patient lend the robotic professionals a strange, formal humanity, at the same moment in the movie when their own fallibility begins to be revealed.
Both technology and technologists promise perfection, and in the end both are revealed as imperfect and unable to overcome the challenges of the human condition – sickness, insanity, violence and death. Once the patient leaves the hospital, the movie shifts to a more conventional ‘crazed murderer’ theme, and things become less interesting.
It is this shift that cripples Terminal Man and prevents it from being termiinal science fiction classic it might have been. This is still a movie worth watching, however, if only to get a glimpse of how the s saw the near future.
There are endless details for the technophile, from absurdly technological architecture to atomic batteries to ancient video terminals to mainframe computers to futuristic touchtone telephones.
The technological landscape is presented with a glistening newness that evokes movies like The Anderson Tapes, Coma, Westworld, and The Andromeda Strain the last three of circhton, like Terminal Man, were written by Michael Crichton.
