  1. im pretty sure the city they were in was LA. and the guys first finds out that he lived in a computer “world” was when he drove outside the city and went passed an “end of the road” sign and kept going and discovered a digital wall or something like that

    1. thirteenth floor looks almost exactly like it but that one was made in 1999. so is there a remake of thirteenth floor? cause the one i watched was only a few years ago in the theater

  2. Interesting, since The Thirteenth Floor was a remake itself – or at least a second take on the same source novel adapted by Fassbinder as World on a Wire in 1973. Could you have seen World on a Wire? It was originally made as a miniseries for German TV, but the Criterion Collection released it Stateside only a few years ago.

  3. The restored WOAW runs 3.5 hours. But I suppose it could have been given a limited theatrical run. Do you remember your movie being (very) long?
