Inspector Jacob Foucault: The Grid takes all those things unique to you, your social security number, your passport, your debit and credit accounts and links them to one thing... your DNA. With just a touch, the Grid collects a tiny sample of your genetic material, ID-ing you instantly. Then a purchase can be deducted directly from your personal accounts, or you can unlock and start your car and it all works within a margin error of 0.001%... the ultimate social network!

A timely warning - Please produce a full length feature!
4 April 2014 | by vipcorp-954-708527See all my reviews

Plurality is a very well done short, film. It presents an important message about the dangers of sacrificing freedom for security. This is a warning for all of us and it shows just how close we are to the point of no return, right here, right now, today.

The central idea is not new, but sadly, no one seems to be paying attention and I have not seen much, if anything, in film that hits the nail right on the head in this manner. The closest things out there exaggerate with hypothetical, fanciful future technology which makes the clear and present danger we are facing less real. Plurality, is different. Although the film does appear to include a far-fetched technology which is revealed near the end, it is only used as a plot device for the characters to deliver the message about the very real danger of what is taking place right now, all around us, with our current technology.

Plurality does not have great acting or dialog. Its futuristic "floating computer screen" special effects are well done but seem a bit overused - likely to show some flash within the short running time. This is not a polished work by any means, and it is not some "brilliant masterpiece," but for its budget and scope, it succeeds as an entertaining and thought provoking teaser film. By the end of this short, you will want to see more.

It would be nice to see this made into a fully developed feature film, but please do not let it near Hollywood - they would turn it into some kind of anti-corporate bastardization of what it is intended to be.

We need more people making films that encourage people to step back and think about the horrifying future we seem all too eager to embrace at the expense of our freedom. Freedom comes with a price consisting of responsibility, insecurity, inconvenience and even hardship and bloodshed. Some of us understand that and value freedom all the more for it. Unfortunately, most do not.
