"Welt am Draht"

the movie was on German TV years ago (rerun later, but also years ago
already) in two parts. I have it on VHS tape, and I am lucky enough to
have a printed listing so I don't need the broken RD53 in the PDP-11 to
find the tape.

However, I am not sure if this will really help you: it is in German,
and it is in PAL video format, so you as well as your VCR will need
special features to be able to understand it. ;-)

Technical details are in http://uk.imdb.com/Title?0070904 - just in case
you are only looking for these...

A similar idea is behind "Matrix" and "The 13th Floor", but Fassbinder's
version is indeed a classic and impressive one.
