Storyline

The story is set in a world where implanted microchips can record all moments of an individual's life. The chips are removed upon death so the images can be edited into something of a highlight reel for loved ones who want to remember the deceased. Caviezel portrays the leader of the organization that opposes this technology's development. Written by Bubba

Trivia

Pink Floyd's 1983 album, The Final Cut, shares a character with this film, Fletcher (named after Roger Waters' father). It isn't clear if this connection is deliberate, but the album also features overtones of tragic loss and memories. See more »

Goofs

When Bannister takes his daughter into his study, he closes the door. The visual record is shot along the length of his arm, so either his eyes are in the middle of his chest, or the camera was shooting from too low. See more »

Intriguing plot, intense acting
25 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

The plot is timely and intriguing, providing lots of food for thought as to the perhaps not-too-far future prospects of technology and our own legacies.

I agree the relationship between Williams' character and his love interest was too sketchy. With a few extra minutes expanding on those two, the film might have been more fleshed out. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. It really gave us pause to reflect on the pros and cons of the "Zoe Implant" and "rememories." Appreciated the intense acting abilities of Williams and Caviezel; otherwise, the movie might have lagged even more.

I thought the angles of the camera shots were interesting.
