I really liked The Final Cut. It may not have enough excitement to appeal to some viewers, but it is intense in its own narrow, low-key fashion. The story takes place in a futuristic setting, but rookie writer/director Omar Naim doesn't approach the story from a what-if science fiction angle; this is really the story of one man's inner soul and how one significant memory can haunt you even as it is shaping your destiny.

The story is centered on a fascinating premise - that one's memories can be recorded and played back after the individual's death. The Zoe chip makes this possible; it's a synthetic implant that grows along with you as it records every single moment of your life. After your death, a sort of highlight reel of your most significant memories is put together and shown in a special Rememory service for all your family and friends to watch. Condensing someone's life into a couple of hours is a tough job, and it takes a talented professional cutter to do the job right. Alan Hackman (Williams) is one of the best cutters out there. He sees everything from each person's life, including some pretty awful stuff, but he gives the family the good memories they yearn for. There are plenty of protesters out there opposed to the Zoe chip, including one of Alan's old colleagues. Like leftist protest groups everywhere, these guys have no problem resorting to intimidation and violence - they only worry about the ethics of their opponents, not their own. Everything comes to a head when one of the bigshots behind the Zoe chip dies. Hackman has the job of cutting the Rememory, but the protestors want the data in order to pin something on the dead guy and bring down the company.

"The final cut" is a movie for the kind of spectator that doesn't mind a strange plot, as long as it is interesting and engaging.

This film is set in the future, in a time when parents can choose to buy a "Zoe" chip for their unborn child. That chip grows naturally with the child, and records every moment of his life. When a person with a Zoe chip dies, a "cutter" erases the bad memories in his chip, and makes a short film with the best ones, so the relatives of the deceased can hold a special ceremony called a "rememory".

Alan (Robin Williams) is known as the best cutter. He specializes in overly difficult jobs, namely in making good films out of the Zoe chips of dishonest but very rich people. That is the reason why the widow of a very important man hires Alan to cut the rememory of her dead husband. The problem is, that man worked for the firm that invented the Zoe chip, and a radical group that opposes that technology wants to get hold of his chip to discredit the company.

When Alan is contacted by the leader of that group, Fletcher (Jim Caviezel), his initial reaction is to step back and return the chip to the widow. Unfortunately, Alan cannot do that, as he needs something that can only be found in the dead man's Zoe chip.

All in all, I think this is a very good first effort by Omar Naim, the director. I believe that this movie was entertaining, even though somewhat overly dark, but I supposed that could be expected considering the subject. On the other hand, the ending was ultimately unsatisfying, and that is the reason why I only give this movie 3 stars. You will probably like "The final cut" if you rent it, but it isn't the kind of dvd I would recommend you to buy...

This is a dark and moody futuristic film. In the film, affluent parents a pre-natal recording chip implant for their children. The implant, called the "Zoe" chip, records that individual's lifetime memories in real time. When the individual dies, the implanted chip in which all of the individuals memories are recorded, is removed and given to a "cutter". The job of the cutter is to basically edit the memories of the deceased and create a full length feature film of the memories of the deceased. This film is then shown at a "re-memory" ceremony held on behalf of the deceased, where the dearly departed is remembered the way that those left behind among the living would like.

Alan Hakman (Robin Williams) is the best cutter in the business. His handling of the memories of the deceased always end up with a film that makes everyone happy, even though the memorial portrait of the deceased may bear little resemblance to the way that the individual may have actually been in life. Alan likens himself to a modern day, functional equivalent of the sin eaters of old. He views his job as one of basically washing away the sins of the deceased for the sake of the living. Obviously, due to the extremely intimate and personal nature of what he does, a cutter cannot be someone who himself has an implant.

Alan is a stunted human being, due to a traumatic childhood experience involving a newly made friend. He was also orphaned at an early age. So, he is a guy who is really not too in touch with his feelings. He has a girlfriend, sort of-kind of, named Delila (Mira Sorvino), with whom he is trying, however badly, to establish a connection. Somehow, the path of true love does not go too smoothly for Alan.
