the prisoner

Good stuff. Stylish, clever, fun, a worthwhile new take on the original television series, and a bit dreamlike. Great actors in the leading roles. And a good score.

Vanilla Sky + Dark City + Matrix + Minority Report + The Prisoner (old TV series) = The [new] Prisoner.

And while I'm in the conceptual neighborhood, Dark City was really the same movie as Beautiful Dreamer, which isn't a bad thing. Watch both, and see if you don't agree.

Discussion about The Prisoner will follow, eventually. It really was quite good.
