Product Description

Looker (DVD)

Michael Crichton ("Disclosure," "Jurassic Park," TV's "ER") wrote and directed this smart, high-tech thriller that delves into just how profitable supermodels can be, once you're rid of the models. Plastic surgeon Albert Finney ("The Dresser," "Orphans") goes after big business execs (Oscar-winner James Coburn -- "Maverick," and Emmy Award-winner Leigh Taylor-Young -- "Picket Fences") when he realizes his glamorous young patient Susan Dey ("L.A. Law," "Love and War") is next in line for computerized cloning -- and murder.

Someone is killing the supermodel clients of Hollywood plastic surgeon Albert Finney, and because this is a Michael Crichton movie, there has to be a pop-techno-scientific reason for it. Welcome to the daffy world of Looker, a 1981 film that manages to blend one or two interesting cultural ideas with a dismal storyline and a wonderfully cheesy early-Reagan-era look. The trail of murders leads to a corporation called Digital Matrix (Crichton always was prophetic about naming things), where head honcho James Coburn has launched a nonsensical plan involving TV commercials and mind control. Accused of the model deaths, Finney must track down the real culprit, aided by client Susan Dey (in her most appealing non-TV role). There's also a crazy "light gun" that causes victims to black out, a device that leads to some very strange shoot-outs. All of this might have been fun if the movie had any kind of suspense or distinctive characters. Albert Finney made this the same year he did Wolfen, after a hiatus from movie acting--a pair of eccentric choices, to be sure. Adding to the silliness is a truly wretched theme song, made the way they made 'em in the early '80s. --Robert Horton
