Similar to Cube, Vincenzo Natali’s debut feature, this is yet another story of labyrinthine entrapment set in the not so distant future. When Digicorp signs up a non-entity to become a corporate spy, it seems the perfect opportunity for Morgan Sullivan to bring some excitement to an otherwise bland life. He not only gets to travel from state to state (using the alias, Jack Thursby) but Sullivan quickly reinvents himself as a cigarette smoking, single malt drinking, lover of golf from the South Seas. But his assignments – secretly recording speeches given at hotel conventions put on by rival corporation Sunways – turn out to be drab, uneventful affairs. Then a strange, attractive woman called Rita reveals that Digicorp has been using the conferences to brainwash Morgan into believing that he really is Jack, and Morgan is soon co-opted to do counterintelligence work for Sunways, pretending to think he is Jack and feeding bogus data to Digicorp. Swept along by the unclear motives of both corporations, and by the interventions of a shadowy freelance operative called Sebastian Rooks, Morgan begins to lose his grip on who he is, what he wants and where his allegiances lie.
