Brain Dead

Brain Dead Review


Is Bill Pullman's brain doctor dead, alive, crazy, sane, what? This bit of Corman (his daughter, anyway) nuttiness has a couple of big pre-star stars in "the two Bills," and while it tries to be as clever and provocative as a movie like Jacob's Ladder, it ends up as inexplicable and inscrutable as Lost Highway... which oddly enough starred Pullman as well. I won't try to explain the plot (okay: brain doctor's brain goes bust), but I don't necessarily suggest you watch it, either.
