Here’s to 40 Years of Virtual Reality in Movies

Film essayist Rishi Kaneria’s latest video is a brief exploration of movies that have featured virtual reality, including Tron, Total Recall, The Matrix Trilogy, and Hackers. According to Rishi:

Virtual Reality has been called the ‘last medium.’ And that is what I like about it. It goes beyond any rectangle on the wall or in your hand and is the closest thing to recreating the human sensory experience. The world itself disappears while leaving you truly immersed in other worlds and perspectives.  And I believe these types of experiences can help build true empathy in people.
