I highly recommend that you get it now, and that you tell all your friends to get it. Watch it more than once, and you will see details that you missed on the first viewing.
And guys, it has Alanis Morissette. Shea Wigham plays a young author (Philip K. Dick) whose friend Nick Brady (played by Jonathan Scarfe) is unwittingly drawn into danger by a strange pink light and a voice that transmits information directly into his head. The VALIS satellite attempts to free humanity from oppression by a totalitarian government.
This is, in my opinion, a must see, not only for fans of science fiction and Philip K. Dick, but for everyone who values human rights.

From Philip K. Dick – author of Blade Runner, Minority Report and A Scanner Darkly – his most prophetic science fiction thriller. In an alternate reality 1985, Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe), a record store clerk in Berkeley begins to experience strange visions transmitted from an extra-terrestrial source he calls VALIS. He moves to Los Angeles with his wife, Rachel (Katheryn Winnick), where he becomes a successful music executive with a secret mission to overthrow the oppressive, totalitarian American regime helmed by President Fremont (Scott Wilson). But what is VALIS? A higher consciousness from another reality, an alien life-form or perhaps, even God? With the help of his best friend, a science-fiction writer – Philip K. Dick himself (Shea Whigham) – and a beautiful, mysterious woman named Silvia (Alanis Morissette)- Nick finds himself drawn into a conspiracy of cosmic, mind-shattering proportions. Although it might cost them their freedom or even their lives, they join forces to bring a message of hope from the stars and reveal the dangerous truth.
