That TV commercial actress is so seductive she could sell you anything. She’s only a computer-generated illusion. What about the real beauty who was the computer’s model? Sorry, you can’t meet her: She and others like her have been murdered.
Writer/director Michael Crichton reaches into his brain-teasing bag of tricks for a mesmerizing thriller full of unfriendly persuasion generated by high-tech trickery. Albert Finney stars as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon whose supermodel clients start dying mysteriously. Susan Dey plays his latest patient, also now in peril. And James Coburn is the head of a research facility which has developed a subtly hypnotic way to sell things. Take a good look at sleek, chic, scary Looker. There’s a lot more than meets the eye.
