Addicted to gambling. A permanently tired school kid in real life, the muscled bodyguard of a sexy pop star in virtual space. “Get Real!” is an intense, pumping, aesthetically astounding depiction of reality shifts, leaden fatigue and social isolation. Fortunately, a pretty classmate succeeds in disrupting the all but inexorable pull of the digital world.

A film that goes under the skin: “Metalosis Maligna” is a disease that affects patients with medical implants. It occurs when, for example, a metal hip joint interacts badly with human tissue. The consequences are striking: the metal begins to grow and metastasize until it pierces and finally destroys the skin from inside.
