Storyline

Col. Jason Halsey (USAF) has just had a terrible air disaster and can't remember a thing -- even his name. Now he must go head-to-head with the psychiatrist Dr. Gottlieb as his only chance to recover his memory. Col. Halsey is a stealth fighter test pilot in the highly classified project Black Magic. Is Dr. Gottlieb a helping professional or is he a counter-intelligence agent sent to debrief Halsey? This movie draws considerable footage from the Lockheed Corp. documentary "Blackbird: The Movie" for its background material on the SR-71 spy plane. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

During Jason's flashback of his arrival at the hospital after a car crash, a loudspeaker is heard calling "Dr. Stahl and Dr. Gee to psychiatrics". This is almost certainly a reference to Eric Steven Stahl and Gerald Laurence (a.k.a. G-man), the movie's writers. See more »

A Master Class!
9 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is truly a great lesson of editing (both sound and picture). I think everyone who cares about this aspect of cinematography should see it because it's a "Master class".

I'm really surprised that the editor of this movie (Stefan Küt) has only one entry on IMDb because he is simply brilliant.

I'm an editor myself and honestly I was amazed by the stylish, creative, surgical precision of each cut of image and sound. Even if it's 15 years old, it's still modern and innovative.

Moreover the scenario is brilliant, the acting is great and I also liked the music. Bravo!
