Movie Info

In a parallel present, delivery man Ray Tincelli is struggling to support himself and his ailing younger brother. After a series of two-bit hustles and unsuccessful swindles, Ray takes a job in a strange new realm of the gig economy: trekking deep into the forest, pulling cable over miles of terrain to connect large, metal cubes that link together the new quantum trading market. As he gets pulled deeper into the zone, he encounters growing hostility and the threat of robot cablers, and must choose to either help his fellow workers or to get rich and get out.

It deserves praise for its unusual take on the sci-fi theme and the skilful way in which a social issue is combined with a futuristic thriller format. Imperial makes an unusual sort of hero.

Lapsis is a powerful reminder that people are always first and foremost just people, and that basic dignity and human rights shouldn't be so easily stripped away in pursuit of dreamtech utopias.

Noah Hutton's sci-fi satire takes on greedy corporations that prey on gig workers and does it with smarts while never shirking its primary obligation - to entertain.

The low-budget, idea-driven corner of science fiction has become a crowded place recently. Lapsis is the latest entry worth seeing and arguing about.

I found it sort of engaging... one of the rare sci-fi movies that's a blue collar sci-fi movie.
