Altered States (1980) REVIEW

This is William Hurt’s debut, and there’s much to praise about it. Firstly, outstanding performance. The kind that lasts an impression and is thought of every time “William Hurt” is pronounced out loud. The film, in a nutshell could be summed up as a man’s obsessive quest for the “truth”. Truth about life, and the universe, why we’re here, who created us? These are the core questions Ken Russel – more fairly, the original author Paddy Chayefsky – asks. All of that, is assisted by insane hallucinatory and downright horrifying visual sequences and music, which when combined, literally gave me goosebumps when I saw it all on screen. They take you on a surreal ‘trip’ and are a way for the viewer to experience what Hurt’s character undergoes when he is in the isolation chamber. On another note, the pacing is a little slow in the first act, but sudden outbursts of surreal visual sequences get you back up in form.If you’re a thinker, this one’s for you.

Altered States (1980) PLOT STORY

It’s the late 1960’s. Just for a lark, graduate student Eddie Jessup, known for being unconventional, brilliant and slightly mad, conducts experiments with an isolation chamber, using himself as the subject. His experiences in the chamber cause him to hallucinate, much of the imagery being religious-based despite he not being a religious man. Seven years later, he is a respected full professor in the Harvard Medical School. Believing he has lost his edge and has fallen into an unwanted state of respectability, Eddie decides to resume his work with sensory deprivation, this time using hallucinogens, specifically untested ones used in mystical Mexican rituals, to enhance the experience of being in the isolation tank. After initial tests, he claims he entered an alternate physical and mental state. Although unbelieving of Eddie’s claims, his colleagues Arthur Rosenberg and Mason Parrish, as well as Eddie’s wife, Emily, who is in her own right a respected academic, are concerned for Eddie’s well being. However, if Eddie’s claims are indeed true, he could do irreparable harm to himself and others around him, especially if his altered states are uncontrollable.
