The Final Cut

Somehow, first-time Jordanian filmmaker Omar Naim talked Robin Williams, Mira Sorvino and Jim Caviezel into starring in this no-budget sci-fi thriller. Story concerns a futuristic world where chips implanted at birth record a person's entire life. When they die, a "cutter" edits together a memory reel to commemorate that person's life. Williams stars as a troubled cutter who stumbles across some memories he shouldn't have. Sounds a little like Phillip K. Dick territory, but Naim doesn't quite have the chops to pull it off smoothly. The movie meanders a bit, throwing in some romance and a hint of thrills, but never really wakes up to its potential. 105 minutes
