Brainstorm (30-Sep-1983)

Director: Douglas Trumbull

Writers: Philip Frank Messina; Bruce Joel Rubin; Robert Stitzel

Music: James Horner

Producer: Douglas Trumbull

Keywords: Sci-Fi

Laboratory scientists invent a technique of recording brain waves, able to replay an authentic reconstruction of the experience from a first-person point of view. One researcher uses it to communicate his authentic feelings with his wife. A second researcher dies from a heart attack while recording; the existence of her tape becomes quite problematic. Further, the U.S. military becomes very interested in the device. Well-crafted with much thought candy.
