"Shot in a dazzling variety of locations including Algeria, Germany, Britain, and Spain, Jack Nicholson is TV reporter David Locke who, while covering a civil war in Africa, embarks on a new life. Switching identities with a chatty stranger he finds dead in his hotel, Nicholson goes as far as keeping the appointments of the dead man until he discovers the man was involved in some less than reputable dealings on the black market. Along the way he begins an affair with a mysterious student, played to cryptic perfection by Maria Schneider. The meticulously shot film climaxes in one of the most talked-about shots of the decade, a seven minute single take slow zoom—a deft combination of technical proficiency and emotional unease."

They understand that the ruling elite operate in networks that transcend the boundaries of nation states in an agenda intended to lead to global domination using their military might."

The audience is jaded beyond recall. It needs new shocks to the system every day. The adrenaline must flow. The line between reporting the news and inventing it? Erase it. Celebrate the erasure. Watch ratings soar.
