…about the flight and life and death
1980s film in English.
An American military test pilot has been involved in a crash and sits with a psychiatrist to debrief about the flight.
We cut between the conversation and scenes of the flight and crash, during the movie.
The end scene is a splice of the philosophical questions of life and death and answers of the conversation, we learn that the pilot never survived the crash.
I think at one point the pilot tries to touch the psychiatrist on the face to see if he’s real.
The pilot reminded me of Roy Scheider, but I could be wrong.
