Forgotten Movies: Seconds
When man grows tired of his humdrum life, he is approached by a group called THE COMPANY who offer to give him a new one: new body, friends, wife, profession, etc. Rock plays the new character and his new life at first seem like a good fit. Of course, things begin to go awry pretty quickly. This film was made in 1965 and directed by John Frankenheimer, based on a book by David Ely. I saw it not long ago and was impressed with its style and substance.
