Natalie Wood made her last screen appearance in Brainstorm; in fact, she died before the film was completed, necessitating extensive rewrites. Wood's character is secondary to the one played by Christopher Walken. A research scientist, Walken has been experimenting with a revolutionary brain-reading device. This wondrous machine is able to read a person's thought processes and translate these to videotape. When Walken wants to study the brainwaves of his late partner Louise Fletcher, he finds himself seriously at odds with his superiors-not to mention several ominous-looking government types, headed by Cliff Robertson.

What any good sci-fi movie or story does is start with one idea that offers the viewer a ''what if'' and then expands it into a story. I think Brain Storm handles this well. I enjoyed the movie and would see it again.

Does it have English Subtitles? If not, it's worthless! I'm deaf, and what's the use if there's nothing that shows me that it DOES have English Subtitles? Tell me if it does have it. If so, great! I wanna bauy it. If not, bugger it!
