Storyline

Unsuccessfully framed for his wife's murder, Dr. David Krane attempts to find the real culprit by utilizing a new drug that allows him to experience the memories of other people first-hand. As he gets closer to the truth, the injections begin to take their toll on his life. Additionally, a history of alcoholism, a career crisis, and the involvement of police officers in the murder all conspire to prevent Dr. Crane from learning what really happened. The challenge, then, is for the doctor to overcome these obstacles before his time runs out. Written by Mike Yaffe <myaffe@harris.com>

Goofs

During the flashback of Gleick's interview of Krane, he says that Krane's blood alcohol level was "2.5". He most likely meant .25, or just over three times the limit deemed legally impaired (in most places). For Krane to have been at 2.5, he would have been five times over what is most likely a fatal amount. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. David Krane: [arriving] Hey.
Curtis Avery: Hey. Look at this, how is it they always get here before we do?
Dr. David Krane: The police band radios.
Curtis Avery: No, that was a rhetorical question, David. That was one to which I didn't really expect an answer.
Dr. David Krane: You know me Curtis, I think most of them will look better in plastic-zipper suits. You got the smoke?
Curtis Avery: No, I think it's something like fingerprints, we can just guess... Yeah, I brought the smoke.

Another Entertaining Dahl-Directed Thriller
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best points of this sci-fi/mystery/thriller, I thought, were: 1 - very good suspense; 2 - a different-angle story; and 3 - an involving "whodunit" story; 4 - and a fast- moving for a two-hour film.

Another big plus: John Dahl directed this, and in his prime. This movie came on the heels of Kill Me Again, Red Rock West and The Last Seduction.....all of them very entertaining films.

This would be best for the first-time viewer, but I still have enjoyed it the three times I've seen it. I just wait about 4-5 years between viewings so as not to remember everything. One thing unusual: Linda Fiorentino actually plays a nice lady! Usually, she's brutal! Ray Liotta, Peter Coyote, Christopher McDonald and David Paymer all provide good male performances with Liotta playing the central character.

Be warned that this story is a bit unbelievable. It's pretty far out, and it can get on the gory side, but it's different and will keep your attention.
