Looker

This tediously convoluted sci-fi thriller combines elements from Westworld and Coma, with Coburn as a tycoon experimenting with subliminally hypnotic TV commercials featuring replicated holograph models (the original girls, 'perfected' by Finney's plastic surgeon, are subsequently murdered for no apparent reason). Mostly pretty silly and uncertain whether to be tongue-in-cheek, it has one or two good scenes and some intriguing hardware, including the Looker (Light Ocular Oriented Kinetic Energetic Responsers) disorientation gun.
