Memory: Directed by Bennett Davlin. With Dennis Hopper, Billy Zane, Tricia Helfer, Ann-Margret. A medical reseracher teams with a retired doctor to root around in the genetically stored memories of a serial killer.
“While in Salvador, Brazil, in a medical congress, the researcher of Alzheimer Dr. Taylor Briggs (Billy Zane) and his colleague and friend Dr. Deepra Chang (Terry Chen) are invited to visit a local hospital. They find a patient from Amazon with a unique case of tumors in the memory cells, and while examining him, the glove of Taylor ruptures and his finger touches a strange powder. Taylor has visions from 1971, and once back to Boston, he finds that he has genetically stored memories of a serial killer of little girls activated by the powder. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;Memoryu0026quot; is a messy and absurd thriller. I was attracted by the cast, with Dennis Hopper, Ann-Margret and Billy Zane, but I in the end I was absolutely disappointed with the coincidences and the insane and totally unbelievable story. For Brazilians, it is hilariously ridiculous the geographic confusion of the screenplay, with a sick patient coming from Amazon to Salvador (why?); Taylor and Deepra are in a congress in Salvador (there is a footage of the city), they go to a bar and the director uses footage of the front of u0026quot;Barril 1800u0026quot;, in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro instead of a local bar; the interior of the bar is probably in a studio. My vote is four.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTitle (Brazil): u0026quot;Alucinaçõesu0026quot; (u0026quot;Hallucinationsu0026quot;)”
