Londoner Adam Jones is stuck in a dead end job; lives alone with his cat and spends his free time obsessing over the latest conspiracy theories on the Internet. Taking an experimental drug for his epilepsy, manufactured by the Pfenal corporation, Adam begins suffering from seizures, black outs and terrifying visions. When he wakes up in a hotel room in Mexico missing a kidney, Adam becomes convinced that he's unwittingly stumbled into the middle of a conspiracy. Drugged by mysterious paramedics, Adam finds himself back in his London flat. Just as he assumes it's just been a bad dream, the pain of a scar on his back serves to convince him that something dark and disturbing is indeed happening. Worse still, Adam's one friend at work, Tracey, informs him that he's been missing from work for a week and as a result he's been fired. He turns to his doctor, but she seems to be overly zealous in prescribing the drug company's medication. His only confidant is his beautiful and mysterious ... Written by JL

Interesting but not innovative
18 September 2005 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

EMR is a nice movie. It starts with a nice introduction of the main character and in the first few minutes gets you right into the movie. The main Char is very well performed and the storyline flows very nicely providing the feelings of confusion and loss that the movie intends to intensify.

For the way it transmits feelings of overwhelming mix between dreams and reality it is a great movie but the theme of conspiracy and the way this movie handles its twists is really not very innovative leaving one expecting for a bit more.

This way I rated EMR above average but not too much, too see on a Sunday afternoon ;)
