“Memory is the ultimate definer of our lives. For what are our lives, but a collection of memories… memories of events, experiences, emotions… all stamped onto our nervous systems, all leading to here and now, making us each the person we are today. Without them, the present would be void of context.” – Gordon Dunn
Number of Times Seen – 1 (29 Dec 2020)
Brief Synopsis – A man with a troubled past tries to uncover the mystery of the possible murder of a friend who was the inventor of a machine that could help people relive unfiltered memories.
Bottom Line – Intriguing concept that unfortunately doesn’t work as well as it might. Peter Dinklage is fine in the lead, but the story gets a bit too convoluted for its own good as things progress. The idea of being able to clearly view ones memories is done so well and its unfortunate that they aren’t able to develop that part of the story more effectively because it has so many possibilities
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The gorgeous modern house used as the home of the Dunns was discovered via the girlfriend of a crew member. Built on the outskirts of the town where they shot, it had been used for commercial purposes (a sizable expense) previously. The director feared they wouldn’t be able to afford it; however, fortunately for him, the owner was a Game of Thrones (2011) fan and decided to let them use it as long as he and his family got to meet Peter Dinklage.

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
