The Reconstruction of William Zero (aka The Proxy) movie rating: red light

The Reconstruction of William Zero red light

Thematically ambitious cloning drama wants to explore the personal ramifications of a new technology but falls down where it needs to be strongest: its emotional tenor ranges from inexplicable to implausible.
I’m “biast” (pro): always on the lookout for smart SF

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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