(If I put the capitalization in the right places.)

Since I have extremely limited time for seeing movies or other entertainment right now, I thought I'd ask for opinion's on Cronenberg's movie eXistenZ. From what I hear, it involves Phillip K. Dick style ideas about "what is reality" and might be of interest from an extropian angle. Has anyone seen it? Does it contain ideas worth going to see? Is it stylistically excellent (like Matrix)?

VR movies seem to be all the rage. The Thirteenth Floor looks weak from the preview, but any info on that one would also be good to hear.
