Plot: Imagine a machine that downloads one person’s thoughts and sensations to another individual. Any person. Any experience. Now imagine how that breakthrough technology might be corrupted in the wrong hands. Christopher Walken, Natalie Wood (in her final film) and Louise Fletcher portray virtual reality researchers determined to keep their high-tech invention from lowdown tampering in Brainstorm.
