Overview
It's the journey of a lifetime...and beyond a lifetime. Christopher Walken, Louise Fletcher, Natalie Wood and Cliff Robertson star in this "intriguing, technically superb thriller" (Boxoffice) that plunges with unrelenting excitement into the mysteries of the mind...and the soul! Bristling with "frightening and euphoric fireworks that explode across the screen" (The New York Times), amazing special effects and stunning ideas that regale the mind with their ingenuity, Brainstorm is that rare film that is at once thrilling, thought-provoking and touching. Walken is Mike Brace, a technological genius who's created a device that can record and play back human thought. But when the military emerges as an unwanted "silent partner" in his project, he and his wife (Wood) are thrust into a breathless, non-stop race to prevent the machine from falling into the wrong hands and becoming the ultimate government weapon!
