Speculation[edit]

"but finds himself seriously outclassed and isolated by the subtle and invasive corporation. He can sense the fate the corporation intends for him but cannot avoid it."

This seems a little presumptuous. Figureground 06:03, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Jim Davis[edit]

Have you seen the picture? It's also in the IMDb, which I assuredly did NOT write! It's Jim Davis! He's the Senator shot at the Space Needle; why you "disgree" with this is beyond me. (BTW, Lee Marvin gets shot in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance).

Yes, I've seen it, which is why I removed the link to Davis; see my note below. MisfitToys 10:11, Sep 10, 2004 (UTC)

Hi, MisfitToys.

Are you sure Jim Davis didn't play Senator John Hammond? I don't have the DVD to hand, but Google the IMDb, and MisfitToys :-) seem to think he did.

The article suggested he played the senator assassinated in Seattle; that character is Senator Carroll. Davis' character - Sen. Hammond - only appears later in the film. (Saying much else regarding his role would be something of a spoiler.) MisfitToys 10:09, Sep 10, 2004 (UTC)

This whole article is one big spoiler, so I don't feel that any more harm can be done to it by naming who gets killed and when. The revelation of Frady's demise and how it comes about pretty much makes this whole effort quite capable of ruining the enjoyment of this movie to anyone who hasn't seen it.

The Parallax Test[edit]

At the very end of the credits there is information about the sources used in the "Parallax Test" sequence. A photography book titled Suburbia by Bill Owens is listed. There is an article here on the book, but without a copy of the book I haven't been able to pin down which photos were used in the film. An article on the Parallax Test by those with pertinent information would be most welcome. Entries in the "Trivia" section on who might have copied the idea for their music video are entirely worthless.Gspong 03:04, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
