Twitter Capsule: Fruit of Hollywood's first, fumbling grapples with virtual reality. Impossible to believe this pleased even its makers.

VOR:   Theoretically interesting record of tech-based mid-90s paranoia. But film is so jumbled—undermining story, genre, and prestige cast—it's not even coherent as a dated statement.
