BRAINSTORM is a sorry note for Natalie Wood's career to end on. Nat plays the wife of the character played by Christopher Walken. Let's call her 'Karen.' The movie does. The crisis in the movie is discovered when a male character is involved in a sex act while the device is feeding it to him. He has a heart attack. There is no lengthy sex scene. Don't worry. Tsk, tsk. A female character is atop, and appears to have an orgasm. This outcome is problematic for the facility. In real life, when Thanksgiving comes, Chris has been invited aboard Natalie and her husband's yacht. Four are on it: Dick Davern is the skipper. He is a younger man who is dominated by R.J., using rage and outbursts. The three principals party, until Chris retires to his suite. Later, Natalie disappears. Her body is discovered many hours later, in the water. R.J. appears to be distraught, but he refused to call in the Coast Guard to search for her, in the early stages. Previously, he and Chris had engaged in an argument. All these years there is serious doubt as to what happened that night aboard THE SPLENDOUR. I can only award the movie 2and one half stars, as it is unfinished. However, the opportunity to see lovely Natalie on film once again, is the reason the film gets as much as that. If you are interested in the Natalie Wood murder mystery, Marti Rulli wrote a comprehensive book on the subject, with the help of skipper Dick Davern. One of the rumours going around, was that Natalie had discovered the two famous men engaged in a sex act, and had been infuriated , as a result. This, of course, makes it a 'gay rights issue;' consequently, one needs to tread lightly in one's investigation. It doesn't matter whether the rumour is true, what matters is that god's precious people have been mentioned. they must be protected, or else the big bad meanies of the world will get back to persecuting them, like in the days before their victim-class status was discovered (manufactured).

It's interesting to see what 1983's vision of the future was regarding what would become today's virtual reality. There's a lot of in-your-face smoking, and Louise Fletcher trying to look cool smoking is just a bit much.
