...reality check

The quote in the Strandloper review was bothering me, so I went and looked it up: it's from David Cronenberg's Existenz. The Willem Dafoe character who does illegal bio-port implantations and who runs a gas station is asked "Is this a gas station?" and replies "Only on the most pathetic level of reality".

Good film too: lots of trademark Cronenbergian body-horror ickiness, and the immortal line "There’s a very weird reality-bleed-through effect happening here. I’m not sure I get it." Well I liked it anyway.
