Storyline

In the near future or an alternate reality, there are memory detectives, people who have the ability to enter other peoples' electronically aided memories. They often are used to resolve psychological conflicts, and sometimes to exonerate someone from a crime. John was at one time the top in this field but he has been recovering from the death of his wife, and a stroke. To get back into work the head of the small firm he works for offers him what is supposed to be a simple job, getting 16 year old Anna to start eating again. However, the "simple job" turns into his most challenging. Written by Qfal

Less than the sum of its parts
29 February 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

MINDSCAPE is a rather routine sci-fi thriller that pays obvious nods to previous movies like INCEPTION and PAPERHOUSE. The main character is a kind of psychological detective who, through the MacGuffin of near-future technology, is able to enter into the head of participants and observe their memories playing out.

It's a rather familiar premise and one they don't really do much with , despite best intentions. I appreciated the film's low key atmosphere and the occasional scene of brooding tension, and Mark Strong is a pleasure to watch as an actor, as always. But it's the script that falls down here and ends up being a lot less than the sum of its parts. The pacing is slow and there's an almost entire lack of incident, and by the end it just fizzles into a near-zero stakes game which didn't interest me whatsoever.

It's a pity, as a decent supporting cast (Noah Taylor, Indira Varma, Brian Cox) and a good performance from the fresh-faced Taissa Farmiga (sister of Vera) add up to not much at all.
