In the near future or an alternate reality, there are memory detectives, people who have the ability to enter other people's 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
Anna is obviously British as a young girl and American as a teen. See more »
John tells Anna that when you re-experience your memories with the aid of a Mindscape operator you occasionally may see the operator in the distance but will be unable to identify him. This is obviously what happens to John when he is in jail and Lundgren goes through Johns memories. It is not possible for John to have a memory of confronting Robert, Anna's stepfather, about having him followed by this mysterious man, because at the time the memories were made he had never been followed. The mysterious man is part of him re-experiencing his memories at a much later date with Lundgrens help. Thus having memories of chasing Lundgren who was not there does not make sense as at the time he never chased anybody. See more »
[the funny thing about memory, is it can't be fully trusted. And yet, in the end, it's the only truth we have. And no matter how painful it is, you have got to look at the truth. Because sometimes it's the only thing that can save you. It's the only thing that can set you free]

I need to stop reading IMDb reviews for this type of movie. I skipped all the ones who had possible spoiler alerts, but everyone else saying you had figured it out before he did, and the last 20 minutes are useless and so forth did jade me. And reading the reviews did a funny thing, I thought I knew exactly what was going on and I was wrong. So I guess reading the reviews gave me the wrong ideas. Which was actually quite funny because I kept waiting for my version to come down and it never did. So I missed the obvious because I was sure that was not the story. Okay the movie was enjoyable. It was well done. It was a fun thriller/mystery. I thought the acting was good. I liked the concept, and I think I may of really liked it better if I did not read the reviews first. It is not sci fi at all, just the idea of going into someones memories is a cool concept, but the movie was a straight up mystery/thriller. Just watch it and enjoy it with a bag of popcorn and have fun!
