James Bai's provocative if bleak sci-fi feature (2005) takes place in a depopulated and technophobic society where Luddites have triumphed and a lonely scientist labors secretly on a look-alike robot. To protect himself he sends his alter ego into the lawless streets to run errands, but one day the automaton thwarts a grocery store robbery, earning the affections of the store's pretty owner and inciting the scientist's jealousy. Rugged newcomer Stephen Galaida is agile enough to play both man and machine, though his line readings are so affectless that he telegraphs the major plot twist. 81 min.
