Reminiscence (2021)



Critic Consensus: Although Reminiscence isn't lacking narrative ambition, its uncertain blend of sci-fi action and noir thriller mostly provokes memories of better films.

Movie Info

Nick Bannister (Hugh Jackman), a private investigator of the mind, navigates the darkly alluring world of the past by helping his clients access lost memories. Living on the fringes of the sunken Miami coast, his life is forever changed when he takes on a new client, Mae (Rebecca Ferguson). A simple matter of lost and found becomes a dangerous obsession. As Bannister fights to find the truth about Mae's disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy, and must ultimately answer the question: how far would you go to hold on to the ones you love?

Beyond the surface novelty of the setting and premise, there's not much here that could exactly be called original. But the layering of reflections and shadows has a ghostly glamour of its own.

Like its characters, it's drunk on what came before, relying too heavily on noir tropes. But its smart, thought-provoking concept isn't so easy to shake off.

Joy doesn't lack for ideas. It's just that there are too many and few of them original.

The corny script and the static direction are both by Lisa Joy from the TV show Westworld. This is her first feature film. It probably won't be her last, but hope springs eternal.

It's as if the film itself is [wearing a costume] - and there's not much beneath that layer.

It's a clever tale, anchored by Jackman doing reliable work as an antihero haunted by his sins.
