“Listening” is a film about some techs borrowing some materials from the local University. They develop a means to transcribe people’s inner thoughts. The military gets involves and things go lop-sided. The rest of the film is an argument over what happens about the rights to the human mind. Nobody calls out the fact that the original two guys caused the problem. It’s so weird in a post Wikileaks world to attack privacy matters like this. Still, it’s worth a rental.

The Plot Thus Far
LISTENING, the award-winning debut feature from visionary director Khalil Sullins, is a psychological thriller about penniless grad students who invent mind-reading technology that destroys their lives. David, Ryan, and Jordan hope the telepathy invention will solve all their problems, but the bleeding-edge technology opens a Pandora’s box of new dangers, as the team discovers that when they open their minds, there is nowhere to hide their thoughts. Secrets and betrayals surface, and the technology is stolen by a covert government agency with a hidden agenda. With no one left to trust, David is forced against his friends in a life-or-death battle over not only the privacy of the human mind, but the future of free will itself.
