Radio Free Albemuth movie rating: red light

Radio Free Albemuth red light Jonathan Scarfe Alanis Morissette

A too-literal adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s paranoid science fiction fantasy about government conspiracies, hidden realities, and conversations with parallel universes lacks the atmosphere and human feeling it demands to work on any level.
I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big fan of science fiction

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
