    Default Im looking for a sci-fi movie that used lasers as a recording device.

    Im trying to think of this movie I saw on t.v. years ago where this guy and his girlfriend are doing some sort of a mind experiment for a laboratory. They were using argon and he-ne lasers to *record* and *play back* images?/ sounds? from some sort of machine.
    all I remember is that they lasers *recorded and played back* the supposed information from a tape deck looking device that used what looked like aluminum foil .
    I think the movie was made back in the late 1970s or early 80s.

    the final scene has the guy in a phone booth listening to the machine thru a set of headphones. I seem to remember that he was dying as he was listening to the machine thing.

    Anybody remember what flick that was?
    Anyone know who did the lasers for that movie?
    its not Andromeda strain,not star wars,not real genius.
    This is driving me bonkers....
    Thanks.

    Brainstorm, 1984... Bizarre, cause I *just* rented that flik, las-week from Netflix ..and as-to *who*, well, umm... http://www.laserium.com/TV_movie/index.html ...scroll-down a bit... ...even had some 'audience scanning' (low-power face scanning-shots...) - they had to fight the FDA tooth & nail to get that approved...

    Now, why can't I do this when it's worth '$64,000.00'??
