What if "God" really does "See All" and could play it back instantly?
29 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

The idea of using a "Memory Machine" to dig out truth may not really be an original idea, there was a "Golden Age" classic science fiction story by "Lewis Padgett" (Catherine L. Moore and Henry Kuttner) called "Private Eye" that I have in an "Astounding Science Fiction" Pulp magazine from 1949, which expounds a similar future gadget that records all memories to be used in various murder trials, in fact in that story it became a representation of "God's ever seeing Eye" like we have on the back of a Dollar Bill, and the literary gadget is used simply as the means of exploring the paranoia such a device would engender, if in fact we knew ALL of our memories were being recorded. This happens a bit in this film, but used they way it was here, it was less of that, because this machine was just being introduced and it was the single Prototype in existence- So not many people had experienced it yet, and it was being introduced as a Psychotherapy tool rather than a Truth-telling tool. Which made it more interesting as Dinklage/"Sam" uses it to connect the dots rather than expose anyone outright as a possible murderer. If in fact a murder has occurred.

Not to mention, this machine only records from One person's POV at a time, so it requires cross referencing to other people who had experienced the same thing at the same time to get a clear idea of the truth, and this happens in the Climax of the story. Memories from 2 people paint a picture for one of Sam's forgotten memories.

Ergo, there are several suspects, several people acting guilty, one of them a woman who is suspiciously paranoid about having her memories shown on an Imax screen to the World. This makes her the obvious prime suspect for most of this film, barely edging out Anton Yelchin's "Todd" who was acting very finicky and crazy in this, his possible final role.

The End credits names Sarah-Jane Redmond (Lucy Butler/Legion of Chris Carter's "MillenniuM" fame) as the woman "Allison", whom Dinklage tries to meet, but we don't get to see her, only her arm getting a Tattoo. But since all I saw was a sneak peak of this film, perhaps an extended version will show her face.

Other than that, I disagree that this film is not memorable, it is very well made, well directed and well photographed. How do we judge a film's memorability? Because we are thinking about it for the next 24 hours or more. Like "That was a nice little kick in the Arse", and it was.

Try to find the Lewis Padgett story "Private Eye" to see the similarities, and the differences, to Rememory.

RIP Anton.
