The story is set in a world where implanted microchips can record all moments of an individual's life. The chips are removed upon death so the images can be edited into something of a highlight reel for loved ones who want to remember the deceased. Caviezel portrays the leader of the organization that opposes this technology's development. Written by
Robin Williams also played a lead character named Alan, and shared the role with a child actor who plays Alan's younger self, in Jumanji (1995). See more »
At the beginning of the film, a young Alan Hakman looks at the body of a boy who has fallen from a great height, lying in a puddle of blood. Later in the film, we revisit this scene in a flashback and learn that the puddle is actually a can of red paint that Hakman has knocked over. But in the first scene, the puddle is already there before Hakman approaches the body, and we never see him knock over the paint. See more »
The plot is timely and intriguing, providing lots of food for thought as to the perhaps not-too-far future prospects of technology and our own legacies.
I agree the relationship between Williams' character and his love interest was too sketchy. With a few extra minutes expanding on those two, the film might have been more fleshed out. Overall, I enjoyed the movie. It really gave us pause to reflect on the pros and cons of the "Zoe Implant" and "rememories." Appreciated the intense acting abilities of Williams and Caviezel; otherwise, the movie might have lagged even more.
I thought the angles of the camera shots were interesting.
