Electric Dreams

A further reworking of the sci-fi stand-by about an item of hardware that takes on a human personality. In this one, Edgar the computer becomes jealous of his owner's romance with the pretty cellist upstairs. Exec produced by Richard Branson for Virgin (Films) Ltd, the picture seems more a vehicle for Virgin-related rockery and poppery than for storytelling. Photographically busy, though to no meaningful purpose, mildly amusing at best, the piece finally expires with what could be, but probably isn't, a parody of a feel-good ending.
