Bill wakes up from a coma in a hospital ward, raving about tissue regeneration experiments, final injections, organ transplants and having been cryogenically frozen. Battling flashbacks of his father's death and a car crash, occasional hallucinations and fits of rage he tries to piece together his own history with the help of Ann, a lonely medical psychologist sent in to evaluate whether he should be released. In their confrontational, sexually-charged sessions, Bill flip-flops between pitch-perfect self-diagnoses and his paranoid bio-tech fantasies, but slowly begins to heal. But things are not what they seem. Written by

"Final" tells of an institutionalized man (Leary) and his psychiatrist (Davis) who sort through his confused mental state only to find the aberrations are more outside his mind than in it. An unfortunate film with much unrealized potential, "Final" starts slow, builds slow, and then fizzles. What could have been a darkish psychodrama or a gleaming love story becomes, in the "Final" analysis, little more than excessive tedium in spite of the best efforts of two well cast actors. Recommended only as a last resort for the bored channel surfer or fans of the players. (D+)
