Hoping for a more exciting life than the suburban drawl he currently inhabits, nerdy salaryman Morgan Sullivan (Jeremy Northam) takes a job as an industrial spy at Digicorp, a global computer corporation. Digicorp assigns him the duty of flying to various conventions around America, recording the speeches that are made. But when Sullivan meets a mysterious woman (Lucy Liu) he begins to realize that his job may not be what it seems, as he descends into a dark underworld of brainwashing and struggles to maintain his own identity.


White to black, innocence gives way to darkness. Starring Jeremey Northam and Lucy Liu. The first 20 minutes of this movie are nailbiting, but it quickly becomes too predictable for its own good. Good concept, but not a good film. It's filmed nicely though, and Norham's performance is fantastic - mild-mannered/shy/on the cusp of a nervous breakdown, he gradually gets darker (as does the film) as the movie progresses.
