This looks like it could be one of those lost gems!
I’m gonna have to see this.
Thanks for the review and the tip.

Picked this up at the local video shop expecting it to be another B-grade sci-fi film (and how many of them are there?!).

I reckon ‘Cypher’ is set to be a cult film - one of the films that goes by practically unnoticed and cost a pittence to make, but then is remembered forty years later by people like us (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!! :D).

SFAM said:

Hi Hugo, welcome to Cyberpunkreview. :)

Yeah, Cypher does appear to be forgotten already, and probably will rise up over time as a cult film. It clearly is different in quality from your normal low-budget fare.

Hey SFAM,
Long time … I have been ploughing through your updates and came across this… firstly thanks for doing the review, and second…

This is a brilliant CP movie!!! You are swamped in character flex… I could go on for hours … but won’t … read the review , watch the movie and make up your own mind ;)

SFAM said:

Hi DoomAng3l, I agree, it’s a terrific movie. I’m really thrilled I’ve been able to help folks discover these lost gems - this is one of my main desires with this site.

Set in a time in the distant future, Memoirs Found in a Bathtub is the horrifying first-hand account of a bureaucratic agent trapped deep within the subterranean bowels of a vast underground military complex. In a kafka-esque maelstrom of terrifying confusion and utter insanity, this man must attempt to follow his mission directives of conducting an “on-the-spot investigation. Verify. Search. Destroy. Incite. Inform. Over and out. On the nth day nth hour sector n subsector n rendezvous with N.”

The narrator inhabits a paranoid dystopia where nothing is as it seems, chaos seems to rule all events, and everyone is deeply suspicious of every one else. In danger of losing his mind, our protagonist starts keeping a diary, and it is this diary which details only a few days in his life that is ultimately found by a future society and given the title Notes from the Neogene. Memoirs Found in a Bathtub is this distant voice from the past, this Notes from the Neogene.

The first post is an wiki-article about a book I”v read!! It’s named “Memoirs Found in a Bathtub” writen by Stanislaw Lem. A great Sci-Fi book, that has a story which is similar to the one in Cypher!

SFAM said:

Hi Neuromaster - I’m guessing you’re different from the regular poster here, Neuromancer? If so, welcome to cyberpunkreview :)

And thanks for the reference. We’v ebeen discussing Stanislaw Lem in the Meatspace (forum) - I really have to read some of his stuff.

I found this in the discount DVD box at.. somewhere and instantly bought it as soon as I noticed it was a Vincenzo Natali movie (I absolutely love the original Cube, and his other strangeness that is Nothing).

It is not what I expected, but it is definitely brain melting material ;) And very awesome. I think I’ll have to go watching again tomorrow :)

I just finished this one, it was excellent, I think the main thing that pulled it off was the acting made it believable.

Thank you for introducing me to this great CP film. Just watched it the other night and it was the best movie I’ve seen in a long time. I don’t really know much about data security, but I think I see what you mean about the lack of believability towards the end… Still, it’s an awesome movie full of twists that never seem too forced / contrived.

Sorry to be a pain in the butt, but its Sunways Systems, not Sunways Corporation.

A total surprise. Cerebral. The plot is basically about one company who wants to steal a file from another company’s secure data vault and the levels of security one must hurdle to do it. I started to like Lucy Liu after watching this. Northam is always excellent. The Yakuza garroter from Johnny Mnemonic was in it too. And the hero from Cube-1.

I watched this a year back, and while not floored, i do concede that its level of quality should be the standard for scifi flicks on the SYFY channel - not z-grade bullshit like Ice Spiders v. Megalodork… Funnily enough, i instantly likened it to friends as a low budget “Neuromancer” (which is still a stretch ofcourse), and now Ive read recently that Vincenzo Natali is attached to direct a movie based on Gibson’s masterpiece. http://blastr.com/2012/08/official-long-delayed-neu.php

There is one more thing beside the storyline which is one of my favourites and visuals and other things…it`s music.
Highly increasing the suspence and making me chills all the time.
It`s jazz-like genre, but the scales are kinda wierd, making uncomfortable. Brings kafka feeling and changes whole impression of the whole movie. One of my favourite soundtracks ever (beside the GITS one :D)
