Fascinating Thriller About Memory

by Omar Naim

The Final Cut is a fascinating science fiction thriller about the near future when people have implants that record their lives for use in “remembrances” that are like highlight reels of someone’s life. Robin Williams gives an understated and controlled performance as the troubled and emotionally closed “cutter” who edits the lives of others. It opens up all sorts of questions and ideas about our lives, memories and privacy. For me I loved the editing elements and the understated nature of the science fiction that focussed on the ideas and the characters instead of being driving by the technology. A very impressive debut feature by Omar Naim.
