Too short and unfinished.

The major problem with The Brain Hack is the duration of the movie. Twenty minutes is just not enough to bring a story like this one. The idea though is good. I can see a longer movie being interesting with this story, but now it just fell undevelopped and unfinished. The acting and cinematography are okay as well is the story. It could be a good sci-fi thriller movie with the right funds and actors. The idea is there, it just needs the right people and more money to finish this story. Did I see God in the end? No I didn't, like nobody else ever did unless they are liars or schizophrenics.

Good effort considering limited time & budget!

Considering there are so many awful films produced these days I want to offer the makers of this every encouragement I can. They obviously have talent and I hope they make more films. The ideas here are very interesting & I would really like to see them expanded into a feature.Good work all involved. We don't have enough thought provoking cinema. Keep at it.

Patchy And Headache Inducing Despite The Great Opening

A man sits in front of his laptop clearly agitated . He looks out the window and sees a spectral figure standing on the street corner looking up towards him . He goes back to his computer clearly terrified . He gasps " He's found me" . He swears and panics and as the picture breaks up something enters his room

If nothing else THE BRAIN HACK contains a great opening hook . Billed as "A metaphysical thriller for the digital generation" the opening scene hints it's going to be great horror short but doesn't quite deliver . It reminded me in some ways of Aronofsky's PI as Fallon and Harper discuss the possibilities of God existing . Of course there's very logical reasons for believing in God . In the foreword of his book The Blind Watchmaker Richard Dawkins easily explains it away by stating that whenever mankind became self aware he made things so it's logical that he jumped to the conclusion that someone also made the seas , sky and sun . Take also the ancient Indo-Aryans who through the seasons changing and the female menstrual cycle believed everything including human life itself was cyclical hence Hinduism the oldest established religion on Earth which has reincarnation as its fundamental belief . Unfortunately the discussion between Fallon and Harper becomes a bit confusing and then turns in to a lot of running about while at the same time giving more than a little nod to Cronenberg's VIDEODROME . Then more running about and confused flashbacks in a short film that obviously thinks it is clever but is nothing of the sort and seems to be a showcase of how to give the audience a headache . Nice opening but nothing much else after that
