Something always felt a bit out of place for me in Martin Scorsese’s brilliant “The King of Comedy”, just released on Blu-ray for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it but chalked it up to it being thematically ahead of its time in its investigation of the cult of personality that defines modern entertainment.

Here is the synopsis for “Total Recall”:
“Total Recall” is an action/thriller about reality and memory – inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember it For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall: the company that can turn your dreams into real memories.
For factory worker Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) – even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom he loves – the mind trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life. Real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man.
Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston) – there is no one Quaid can trust except possibly a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) working for the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy). The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love and his true fate.
The film is directed by Len Wiseman. The screenplay is by Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback. The screen story is by Ronald Shusett, Dan O’Bannon, Jon Povill and Kurt Wimmer. The producers are Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe.
