IN THE END, HE SEES EVERYTHING.
In a world where children are implanted with a memory chip at birth, Alan Hakman (Robin Williams) makes (a suddenly dangerous) living as a cutter, one who turns people’s lives into a neatly edited home movie for the relatives. Williams is always interesting to watch as sad, mysterious loners in slightly disturbing films like this, an alternative vision of a world where our most intimate moments are recorded from the start. Unfortunately, I find the concept too hard to believe… which also makes it less than exciting as a thriller.
