Seconds, 1966 – ★★★½

This is definitely not the “best thriller ever made.” It is however a Twilight Zone like concept woven through the runtime of a movie that certainly held my attention.

The idea of becoming someone else and living longer past middle age is one that has been visited recently in “Self/Less.” The metaphors fly throughout both films with a similar pensive lesson.

It’s disturbing watching Rock Hudson drunk and slamming his head on a gurney. It’s also great watching John Randolph (National Lampoon’s A Christmas Vacation) Set the morose stage for the change of body.

This is a good drama that has aspects of a thriller. I enjoyed it but found it was just as good as a Twilight Zone only longer.
