The Brain Machine

Roscoe P. Coltrane stars in this sci-fi thriller where some vaguely sci-fi stuff happens, but thanks to an incoherent script and laughable editing, I'm not entirely sure what those vaguely sci-fi things were. A guy steals some files from some sort of scientific research center, then he runs through some brush wearing a lab coat and carrying a briefcase. It isn't suspicious at all. Then some people talk on phones. Get used to it, because it's going to happen a lot. Suddenly, a boom mic makes an appearance, and it cameos so often the film-makers should have given it an acting credit. Then someone offers someone else a bowl of nuts. I'm not sure why. Suddenly, some abstractly painted walls start closing in on some research subjects, and they seem somewhat threatened by this. I'm not sure why. Then someone takes off their Keds to do a little electrical work. After some not-so-special special effects the film ends, and I don't recall seeing any brain machines at all. They probably should have called this film The Boom Mic, but I don't think anyone would want to see a film called that.
