For this week’s viewing pleasure we present three films that will most definitely take your brain to all kinds of levels of WTF.
Elon Musk could never.
Owen Wilson plays a recent divorcee whose misery is compounded when he’s fired from his job. Salma Hayek is the mysterious homeless stranger who tries to convince him that their broken world is just a computer simulation. Could she be right?
Out Friday on Amazon Prime Video
A Glitch In The Matrix (12)
The latest mind-bending documentary from Rodney Ascher is a deep dive into a theory, propagated by The Matrix films, that we’re all living in a simulation and that maybe our existence is controlled by an unseen gamer.
Out Friday on Dogwoof On Demand and other digital platforms
Birds (Or How To Be One) (No cert)
A film about how to become a bird in nine steps.
Two men leave the human world to found a city where birds and men can live in harmony. Beats baking another loaf of lockdown sourdough, I suppose.
