R.I.P. Anton Yelchin. I'm glad you made most of the moves you did. I will always watch them and you will always be missed.
A mystery with a basis in science fiction, “Rememory” is an interesting blend of genres. Rather than merely a McGuffin — the device that sets the plot in motion — the memory device figures significantly in the story. Flashbacks are employed extensively throughout as Bloom goes through “memory slides” to locate and question subjects. At heart, despite the gimmick of the memory machine, “Rememory” is an old-fashioned mystery based on clever detective work, the elimination of red herrings, and the piecing together of clues.
Dinklage’s Bloom is an enigma, though we gradually learn his backstory, his connection to the deceased inventor, and why he is determined to solve the murder. Not a professional, Bloom stumbles along the way as he navigates among several possible culprits. Were it not for Dinklage, who is riveting throughout, this would be a routine mystery flick. But his commanding screen presence is the film’s primary draw. With a dialogue-heavy script, Dinklage manages to maintain viewer involvement. His unconventional amateur detective character is both fresh and often amusing.
Bonus materials on the widescreen Blu-ray release include audio commentary with writer-director Mark Palansky and actor Peter Dinklage, and the featurette “The Memories We Keep.” A digital HD copy is enclosed.
The production value is great, all the acting is good, the plot is a little stale, you've seen it before, but holy lord Peter Dinklage has some acting chops! He plays a wonderfully nuanced character.
Come for the excellent Peter Dinklage acting, stay for the weird premise and one of the last performances of Anton Yelchin. RIP
