DVD Review: Final Cut – your entire life recorded on a microchip

Would you live your life differently if you knew that your entire life was being recorded by a microchip in your brain?  When you die, people might get access to watch your entire life thru your eyes?

This movie made me really think about whether I would do things differently if I would ultimately be judged by someone (like God) at the end.  I don’t believe in God, but that’s not the point.
I love these movies that take a simple idea, bring you along for a ride and make you question your own beliefs.

I would recommend this movie if you like Memento, Run Lola Run, Minority Report, Dogma

Check out Final Cut
First-time filmmaker Omar Naim writes and directs the sci-fi drama The Final Cut. Set in the near future, the story concerns a microchip that is capable of recording a person’s entire life. Robin Williams plays Alan Hakman, an editor who cuts together the footage to make pleasant movies for funerals. Tormented by his job and his own memories, Alan also has a troubled romantic relationship with bookseller Delilah (Mira Sorvino). While looking through footage for his next project, Alan discovers a man whom he believes is from his own past. Meanwhile, former editor Fletcher (James Caviezel) wants the footage for his own purposes. The Final Cut was shown at the Berlin Film Festival in 2004. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
