The Final Cut

(Canada, 2004, 94 minutes)

In the future, people are implanted at birth with a memory chip that records their entire life, whose footage is condensed at death into a memorial edited by a “cutter”; one such “cutter” finds a clue to a trauma in his own past in the footage he’s currently editing... Good-looking but muddled melodrama with sci-fi overtones that wastes a provocative premise and good technical credits in poor, cliched scripting and non-existant acting.
