I quite like that angle dwyhajlo. I can imagine that Rock Hudson would have definitely gravitated towards the film on the basis of the story resonating with him as you say. The film made me think of Hitchcock (was that intentional by the way? Even down to Saul Bass handling the titles) and yet managed to also be a product of its time. I quite liked it. The claustrophobic camera angles and the editing all contributed to making the film feel very "uncomfortable" with a sense of unease pervading the entire thing. In a way I wish they played a little bit more on the paranoia that the music and shooting style seemed to be evoking, but I guess it still worked as a sign of emotional tension when it all came together during key scenes. Wilson's refusal to play ball throughout the film basically - initially when he was reborn, or even when he first went to the hippy grape party and later when he went back to the corporation all showed a complete lack of agency from him as an individual. It is kind of depressing that it is implied by this pattern of behaviour that even if he was given another chance he would still botch it up. His claims about doing things his own way ring false when you think that he was given enough room to do things his own way and yet he did nothing with the opportunities presented. I guess like he said at the end, he just never had a dream (or knew what he wanted).
