MOVIE REVIEW

With the advent of Jar-Jar Binks and Gollum, Hollywood is coming ever so close to believable CGI characters, actors that need only a voice to come alive.  Jar-Jar was a failure, and Gollum's tale has yet to be told, so a better example may be last year's Final Fantasy, a movie that at some moments had "people" on screen that were so life-like that, had they been placed next to someone like, say, Jay Mohr, you'd swear there were two real human beings standing there.  In Simone, the latest picture from Andrew Niccol, the writer of The Truman Show, Al Pacino stars as a desperate director who blends the line between reality and virtual reality.
