Dir. Steven Lisberger. 1982, 96 mins. DCP. With Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan, Barnard Hughes. This groundbreaking feature follows rebel computer programmer Kevin Flynn (Bridges) as he is scanned and transported into an autocratic universe of zipping vectors and shiny surfaces, somewhere inside the mainframe of an arcade game. An expensive and risky venture for Disney in the 1980s, Tron is notable for its sophisticated sets and elaborate costumes designed by renowned French comic-book artist Moebius (Alien, 1979), while its innovation lies in the extensive use of 3D CGI and bold amalgam of traditional and computer-generated images.
