A medical examiner, who was suspected of murdering his wife, is trying an experimental drug to retrieve his wife's and others' memory and maybe find the killer and the mass murderer in a related present case.
The man behind The Last Seduction, Red Rock West and Joy Ride got his career off to a decent start with this entertaining neo-noir. Dahl's screenplay is intelligent and amusing, and a terrific cast aids the cause. There's a minimum of annoying 80s trappings--mostly the unavoidable excesses of Talia Balsam's wardrobe--and the film remains interesting throughout, though the denouement is somewhat confusing. But then it is noir, after all!
