Yeah, theyre talking computers and the nature of mankind in 1950, so it's pretty forward-looking - when you can figure out what the hell is going on. I'm down w/ a trippy or avante garde film now and then, but im sorry this just sucked.
A similar movie that was fairly decent was Colossus—The Forbin Project. Just sixties American sci-fi, though, not avante-garde. Something with a weird creature feature/science gone awry tinge that's worth catching is Phase IV, if you haven't ever seen it Sammy. I think you'd enjoy it.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
