We've given you what you wanted.
You should be thanking us, Mr. Jones.
All that time and effort spent on you and you can't even find it in your heart to thank us.
[Agent 6 starts slapping Adam's face again]
Thank you? Thank you for what? For making my life a fucking misery? For making me fear my dreams?

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 ;)
