I really enjoyed the behind-the-scene story
of making a movie about Simone, a gorgeous virtual reality actress
they digitally implanted into the film.
This satire film sets out to needle the
industry (all in fun) The story gets better after she becomes
famous, and makes you think, can Hollywood really make fake actors?
I think they're getting close.
Al Pacino delivers another outstanding
showing of his talent and range.
Simone is a director's dream come true,
an actress who will do anything; but is puppet master Al Pacino
up to the task?
A funnier premise than movie, Simone
generates few laughs thanks to Andrew Niccol's heavy-handed script
A lightly humorous film with no suprises
that will remind you of a dozen other films, including Niccol's
own Truman Show.
Al Pacino plays a washed-up filmmaker in
the science fiction comedy called Simone.
The picture has more plot than most Hollywood
movies. The star acquires a computer hard drive containing the
technology to digitally fabricate a film actress and insert her
into a movie.
This is erotic magic, a function entirely
of fantasy that's a worship of nothing but a good set-up for
some sharp comedy and incisive commentary.
