Paranoia 1.0 (which was previously just titled One Point O) was directed by the Icelandic writing/directing team of Jeff Renfroe and Marteinn Thorsson. The film stars Jeremy Sisto as Simon, a computer programmer in a bleak futuristic apartment complex who begins to receive mysterious packages in his apartment and simultaneously begins to freak out in the most paranoid fashion. This movie is really a mystery more than a science-fiction movie as the entire plot centers around how Simon seeks to uncover the truth of what is going on and why people keep dying. The film is set in a very post-apocalyptic and depressing setting.
Paranoia 1.0 was nominated for a Grand Jury prize at Sundance back in 2004 and it won some awards at a few International Film Festivals. I would say this film is watchable, but I really can't see how it is award worthy. It started off slow and picked up in the middle of the movie. I was hoping for a really cool twist ending, but the actual ending of the film was really fairly flat.
The cinematography throughout the film is very bleak and has kind of a green-yellow hue. In fact, the lighting was distracting to me for about the first half an hour of the movie. Eventually, I got used to it, but I felt the cinematography was annoying and a bit overdone.
The best thing about this film was it had a few fairly original science fiction concepts about mass advertising and consumerism being implanted into people's minds. Since these concepts were likely the best thing about the film, I wont go into more details on it. However, I wonder if this film is really worth watching or not. If you are into science-fiction films with post-apocalyptic settings I recommend checking Paranoia 1.0 out, otherwise just skip this one.
