There are a handful of films that peer into the frontier of VR entertainment, especially in the 90’s, the 90’s loved VR. Sometimes virtual reality serves cinema as a cautionary tale (see The Lawnmower Man – don’t take a bunch of drugs and then play with the Vive, got it), sometimes VR is used as a vehicle to explore journeys of consciousness like in The Cell or The Matrix (or Dark City, which predated the Matrix and is basically it’s precursor). Sometimes it’s just an excuse to watch a young Craig Bierko (The Thirteenth Floor).
